Question about 2000 Ford F350 Super Duty Super Cab
I manually locked my warn hubs and put it in 4x4 High half way up my steep driveway in snow and gassed it and heard a loud bang. the 4x4 worked bc i got up the driveway but dont know what the loud bang could have been
Could be one of your hubs wasn't fully locked or maybe your transfer case wasn't fully ingaged

Testimonial: "i was unsure if i had to slowly roll to fully engage but may haven given it to much gas. it was in park i got out and locked the hubs hopped in put in 4 high then immediatly gassed it and kaboom. im worried if i did any damage. i have never had a problem with my 4x4 but i usuall engage at bottom of driveway and slow roll"

When you turn the knob to 4x4 the transfer case will engage then it will also activate the vacuum for the hubs. the truck will kick to a lower gear with transfer case engaged but the hubs are not. thats where the manual hubs come in you will have to lock them in order to spin the wheel.

There is a possibility the axel U-joint is binding, this will put side load on the hubs and keep them from working properly. Turn the steering wheel either far right or left and with front of truck off the ground or the front end disengaged, see if the axel shafts turn free, both sides. If there is binding the U-joint(s) will have to be replaced.
