The ratchet winding noise on the Ranger 4x4 could be a wheel bearing or brake issue. There could also be problems in the front differential. Check all three for any problems. The 1998 Ranger noise is most likely coming from a brake grinding against a rotor, or a bad wheel bearing. Either of these can cause serious problems if left unchecked.
Can you convert a 1998 2wheel drive jeep Cherokee into a 4 wheel drive and already have donor vehicle?
Hello, I too have a 1998 Ford Ranger that the 4 wheel drive does not engage. I have been doing some research online and have found one main reason for this. Since our Fords are shift on the fly 4 wheel drive the hubs automatically engage for us when we switch that little nob.

No. I had a Saturn of that year and the handbook warns against it. no front wheel drive vehicle should be flat towed (using a chain or strap). It will damage the transmission, much as towing an AWD or rear wheel drive vehicle without disconnecting the linkage. The best option if towing a front wheel drive vehicle is to use a car dolly, or call for a wrecker or rollback truck.
