Drove with 4x4 high on today through the snow left it on went to go move it out of the way at work and it sounded awful like grinding gears droped it in Park unlocked manual hubs pulled it out of 4x4 and tried again sound was gonna. Any ideas why it did that? Can you not leave manual hubs engaged? I have no clue I have always had auto hubs.

Check xfer case fluid level; 1356 Fluid Plug Location; "...you should see two bolts in the back side (rear driveshaft side) closest to the rear driveshaft and higher up is the fill plug and way over to the left, near the bottom is the drain plug..."

1356 Fluid Drain & Fill Plug Size; "...It's a 10mm square hole. People strip out the plugs when they use a 3/8" extension which is slightly smaller than 10mm plus extensions do not have sharp edges/corners which makes it worse..."

I always leave my manual hubs engaged without problems,but I mainly drive it around the farm. The only time I disengage them is if i'm going to take it on the highway.

Sounds like the t-case just wasn't engaging fully. No big deal. Or you were in limbo between 4hi and 4lo. By the sounds of it, it's got nothing to do with your hubs.
