Sounds like axle wind up, are al the tyres exactly the same size?
Also have you tried turning left & right etc on loose gravel?

Thanks for that.

No all the tyres are the same but are quite big. 305 BF muds.

Will try steering left and right. Carl

Hi Carlsp, if the above does not work try reversing about 10 to 20 feet or so slowly while trying to disengage 4WD.

I get the same problem in my 4WD tractor. As Shaker said it is probably diff wind up.
Cheers, Bruce.

It just doesn't want to go home mate - let it stay out playing for longer

Had two F250’s up until a few months ago. Presume you have the rotary switch on the dash for 4WD control?

They are pain to engage and a pain to disengage. Usually found they disengage best on a hard surface. Stop, turn switch to 2WD, if it doesn’t come out give the truck a short sharp jerk in reverse, not too severe (watch your trailer). Remember once driving round and round a roundabout trying to get back to 2WD. Since found the reverse trick worked better.

Don't be too rough on it though as you may have a fault.

Clive.

Revrse up 5 to 10 feet and then go from reverse to forward and then back to nuetral and leave it .It should click out in neutral position.
