Default rubbing/ grinding in 4x4 when I turn

when I am in 4x4 and I turn there is a grinding/ rubbing noise and sometimes it jerks. Its hard to explain, like something is catching i don't really know. It does not happen in 2wd though. Also I just got new Warn manual lockout hubs a few months ago, maybe that has something to do with it. I have stock tire size also and the hubs are in the lock position. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

the jerking is just from the u-joints thats just the nature of the beast. as far as rubbing i dont know you have stock tires so there cant be any rubbing on the frame/steering components.

I put 33 on my ranger and when I turn hard the back of the tire will catch the control arm and rub very little.
