Wife has been driving the truck this week. She said it felt "odd" backing out of the driveway and just called saying turning into the garage and parking space almost felt jumpy. No mention of noises, it did great going straight down the beltway at 75. Any common things I should check? Hoping she can drive it home OK. New tires about 3-4 months ago, no recent changes. 65k miles so basically new in my mind. Reading about hubs and front u joints needing grease causing similar issues- is that a thing?

It is 4x4.. I'll sure ask. Wondering if the hub is either locked or needs to be greased and is engaging.

Sure does sound like it is in 4x4. Sometimes when I take the truck to the car wash they turn the knob to 4x4 and I dont catch it until I go around the first corner and you can feel it jump/push the front end.

lol. I was going to ask if you had kids messing around in the truck. Kids love to play with those switches/dials/knobs.
