My 2011 Dodge Nitro keeps slipping out of 4 wheel drive while driving uphill

1. There is no limited slip differential on the Nitro. It was never offered as an option. Traction control acts by applying the brake to the spinning wheel, thus sending torque to the opposite wheel.
2. 4 Wheel Lock locks the 2 drive shafts together - 50/50 torque split.
3. There is NO center differential in the transfer case. Thus, our system is considered a Part Time 4WD system.
4. This being said, you can only engage 4WD on a slippery surface, or you may end up breaking something.
5. The Traction Control works on both the front and back, so it acts like an ELSD on both ends.

Steering at above 40mph sounds like an aeroplane,however when turning right,noisealmost disappears.Driving straight or turning left makes no difference.All appears tight,Drive belt is withib the marks and...

Best guess sight unseen is feathered tires from poor alignment. Feel the inside edges of the tires by rubbing your hand in both directions. If it feel "choppy" it is you tires causing the noise. Try rotating the tires from front to back to see if the noise changes or goes away. If it does, replace the front tires and have the car aligned.

I've been told I need to replace my 1999 Maxima's front axles, but it was not "urgent". Upon inspecting my tire treads, I noticed that when I parked, the steering was turned to the left. Upon...

The alignment angles may off due to worn parts. The half shafts on the Maxima might be worn, as indicated by a clicking noise on turns. The camber and toe can be off caused by worn ball joints or tie rod ends ( which are connected to the rack and pinion), respectively, causing the wheels to appear to be 'toe out' as you describe in your problem.

Sometimes, the wheels will appear to be toe out compared to the body, but are in reality dead straight ahead according to the alignment machine which can measure angles down to a fraction of a degree.

Are you experiencing irregular tire wear, indicating poor alignment?

Before a computerized alignment can be performed, the front end parts should be tight for the various angles, including cast, camber, and toe.

The axles, are less of an issue, except worn ones can cause that notorious clicking and eventually lead to a break down in the drivetrain where the half shaft joint actualy breaks apart.

Also, a worn axle can cause the bearings in the hub to go bad if the axle is binding at all.

It's a good idea to have all of the front end parts as tight as possible.
