This is because the 1500 series is considered light duty regardless of whether it is 2x4 or 4x4. When you add the large mud tires and wheels to the vehicle, that alone stresses the hubs and transfer cases. Add in the overevvving and sudden start-stop jolts of mudding, and you have all the making of drive train failure. If you want to play big boy games, get big boy equipment.
You might want to replace the filter in the transmission and make sure ththe fluid clutch is operating correctly. Both of these checks are relatively cheap compared to rebuilding or replacing your engines transmission. Hope this helps.
You need to crawl under the truck and inspect each brake line for leaks. You also need to check wheel cylinders and calipers. The chances are pretty good that you will find a small leak in a line or a wheel cylinder leaking, pay close attention to the rear of the truck because that is normally where these problems occur. Hope this helps.
Check your driveshaft universal joint (u joint). When the needle bearings go, this is the sound it makes. To check, chock all wheels front and rear, put in neutral, if 4x4, put 4x4 in neutral also, go under vehicle, grab driveshaft at u joint and try to turn back and forth, watching for play, wobble in u joint. U should be able to see it. Let me know how u do.
