    4x4 only turning back wheels fast?

    The front wheels still turn but not nearly as fast as the back any ideas of what I broke?

    Pull the wheels off and check the hexes. Likely culprit if they're plastic and wheel nuts are not checked for tightness.

    Remedy is to buy aluminium hexes and use loctite when tightening those wheel nuts.

    Other possibilities might be centre drive shaft splines, front diff problem maybe... Wheel hexes are your best bet I reckon.

    Not saying this is the problem but....hopefully its something easy. How are your bearings up front? Any grass or debris wound around your axles or drive shafts? Look between the hexes and bearing carriers. Are one of the hexes rounded?
    If you pick up the truck and spin a wheel do all the rest turn to some degree?

    Always check your wheel nuts before you run your truck and do light maintenance checks aswell just to stay on top of your game dude. I think its your hexs that are the prob hope you get it fixed soon man.....peace

    I actually don't know what you mean by 'drive guard' (center shaft maybe?), but regardless, don't forget to add a dab of loctite to stop it happening again
    Well done and happy bashing!
