    Same as Ford ranger i think which have a lot of auto locking hub problems!! Good place to start. If it were on a lift you could see if front drive shaft is turning if so prob. hub trouble.

    thank you I put the truck up and put it into 4 wheel drive and the trans axles were spinning on the front. I looked into the hubs and we found that the hoses were rotten, i replaced them for $14 and now they work. Thank you again.
