Icon4 4 wheel drive problem!!

So my Ranger clicks into 4 wheel drive. I can hear it going into gear when i turn my 4x4s on but when i give it gas only the back wheels spin. What do you guys think is wrong?

If you have a 98-00 then your hubs aren't locking in and you need to mod your hubs or get manuals.

Locking them in is part of going into 4x4. There is no seperate switch, but the vacuum system that operates them is ***** to say in the least, so you'll have to open your hubs and mod them, or get manual hubs like I did.

Temporary fix until you get manual locking hubs. Had to do the same thing a little while ago. 2wd after a 40cm snowfall isn't very enjoyable.
Hope this helps
