Are you on pavement? I would check the cv joints.

Definetly look at the cv axles, its possible that the joints are worn out.

Torn boots and no grease is a problem too.

I would have to say it's normal.Any type of "Hard" turn while in 4 wheel drive, puts a pretty good angle on the cv joints or any type of u joint.

If there's no slippage, you will get some binding.

I agree with the rest about the CVs and stuff. Never hurts to look, especially if you have 87K miles on your truck and you're in 4wd often.
