My first guess would be the torque converter. Your description of WHEN it happens fits perfectly. Check around on the forum for that, as it's been one of the most common problems. I originally...

Are you sure it's not your passenger seatbelt? I'm guessing lots of us here have been frustrated by that damn rattle-bump-rattle. Happens to me every time someone uses that seatbelt. If it's not...

Inner fender issue??

About a year ago, I was on a trip and heard a strange flapping sound coming from the driver's side in the front. The plastic inner fender liner had broken loose from where it's screwed onto the...

Believe me, I totally understand the limitations, and anyone that doesn't and/or isn't willing to work within those limitations shouldn't be plowing. That goes for ANY plow setup, not just one on a...

I wouldn't want to do it with your truck and an "HD" plow either, and if you don't want to argue, why do you keep frickin arguing?

OP asked a legitimate question, and was looking for someone that...

The majority of my post was talking about the '11 Laramie 1500 with the HTS, not the '98. And perhaps you've never been to Wisconsin in the winter, or Traverse City, MI for that matter, where Steve...

I have one on my '11 1500 Laramie Quad Cab and it does fine. I also had one on my last 1500 Ram, a '98 Quad Cab. Actually, I still have both, but the old one's at a cottage.

The '98 was a bit...

There've been other threads on this issue. The prong idea might be a good one, but I'd be careful about bending them too many times.

For me the alcohol trick has been the magic. From time to...

No joy for me yet either. Had it in Tuesday, and they claim that it DID lock for them and bind like it should. They also did a driveability update, but I can't tell that that made any difference.

That's disappointing. I was waiting for a part to come in, so I haven't had mine looked at yet. Appointment's set for next Tuesday, so we'll see. Like I said before, two service writers there have...

Not yet for me, but hopefully soon. I was in for another oil change late last week, and had them look at a front inner fender liner that came loose and then broke. They're ordering that part for me,...

I don't think I buy that. Our transfer cases (with AUTO) are pretty much the same unit, I think, in GMs, and I've heard from plenty of others that they definitely feel it when locked.

Mine, on...

Does your selector have a 4Auto setting? If so, it sounds like the same thing I'm experiencing. I'm suspecting that on mine, the actual lockup isn't happening in 4Lock and it's stuck in 4Auto. So,...

That's good confirmation.

I've got about 11K miles on mine, but this was my FIRST time ever using 4LOCK. Bought the truck in April, and haven't had any snow here until last week. So, there's no...

First off, in our trucks, the manual gear selection only "limits" the transmission to the highest gear selected. It doesn't actually force that gear like some "manumatics". So, if you select 4,...

Yeah. The idea isn't to wail on it and see how bad you can make it hop, just enough to confirm that the fronts and rears are actually locked together.

In my case, I still haven't had a chance to...

Yes, and thanks!

I'll have to do a little more testing to be 100% sure I'm not just losing my mind (just turned 52!), then it's off to the dealer with me.

Yup, rubber.

I wish I knew what brand/model it was because it looked/felt/fit way better than I expected. The dealer suggested it and got it for me for about $100.
