    3” lift, front bumper and winch. Light bars.
    So out playing in some deep mud puddles I found a rock, it pushed my factory skid plate back and hit that plastic box. I don’t know what part it is to order a new one. All I know is my 4x4 is flashing at me and does not work. Can someone help.

    Probably your 4x4 actuator. That’s my guess but it’s hard to tell from the picture.

    What is the ADD? And it is on the front differential.

    ADD is automatic differential disconnect.

    “This system is composed of a vacuum-activated shift fork in the front differential driver's side axle tube: when the transfer case lever is moved to the 4Hi position, vacuum is applied to the fork which in turn moves a sleeve to lock the inner stub axle shaft from the carrier to another shaft in the tube. This axle assembly powers the driver's side wheel, while the passenger side is a single shaft from the carrier to the inner CV joint.”

    I don’t have the part number off the top of my head.

    Does it look like the circled part in this pic?

    Don’t take my word that it is actually that though cause without seeing more I’m just spitballing and guessing it’s that

    Thank you I have been trying to even find a place to start looking. And yes I will confirm it is the right part before I spend money on anything.

    V6 only have the ADD? I don't recall seeing that box on my v8 awd. Also might to check your alignment, looks like one sides all the way out and one sides centered.
