Default Rebuild

do you really think they rebuilt the differental? When the truck got stuck and you move forward you can listen a strong noise like “clsmp” and then it moves smoothly
yes like a gear out of position
any posibility the axle gear is a different relation ?

"clsmp"? Try as I might, I cannot imagine that sound.

Simple, take it back to the shop that rebuilt the diff.
Tell them the symptoms and have them fix what they didn't the first time.

Might also be that your transfercase is stuck in 4Hi lock. Even if your indicator light is showing its in AWD, a badly worn shifter fork can allow it to hop ranges. This has happened to two of my H3 and on another hummer forum it lead to a guy snapping his CV shafts when turning in a parking lot.
