steering radius in 4x

the steering radius in 4 high or low suffers a lot when it's engaged. I know i've turned too far when my steering wheel jerks opposite of the direction i'm turning it. Is anything worn out or is this common?

You can't turn as tight in 4wd, that is normal, I'm not sure about the jerking thing

ummm, you're not trying this on pavement are you? if so all the jerking is the driveline binding and wanting to blow apart your t-case.
