    I just had my 60 up on the hi lift (practice). When I spun the lifted wheel/tire, it would spin a little, then stop. I unlocked the hub, and same result. Then I unlocked the hub on the other wheel (which was on the ground), and the wheel would now spin freely.
    The wheel that was in the air would spin when the wheel that was on the ground was unlocked-it did not matter if the suspended wheel was locked or free. Is my front end messed up?

    P.S. this rig is out of action till I get money to get it going.

    Sounds more like you have some spare time... and some energy to kill....

    I had to read it a couple of times but I'll also go with a sticky hub.

    Which hub? The wheel I was trying to spin, or the one on the ground?

    I do have more time than money. That's what I get for staying home with the kids!

    I 'm sure it'll be obvious when (if) I ever get it apart to install the 4.10 diff.
