utahtrapper Jimmy N. Is correct.
Sounds like you are driving on dry pavement which 4 wheel drive is not intended for.
Also if you keep doing this you will have U joint problems and more.

MDSWA Need to add some vehicle details to get targeted help. Start with any modifications done to the vehicle; lift kit, tire size, any work done on the front end, vehicle mileage. Are you having any problems in 2WD on the road (wandering, darting, death wobble?) Condition of tires and shocks? Any unusual wear on the tires?

Jimmy N. Sounds like your 4WD works as intended.
It's just not intended to be used on dry or hard surfaces, which from what you describe is what you're subjecting it to.
