Problem with my Armada's differential?

I have an Armanda Platinum 4x4, 2015, with about 3500 miles.
Going at slow speed and with full steering input (in a close U turn) aether to left or right and moving forward or in reverse, the inner rear tire make an small jump (like when stepping into something) .
It's happening in 4x2 mode.
I also have a Pathfinder since 2011 and never saw this before.
Thanks in advance for your comments.-

I have a 2012 Platinum 4WD, and I have never experienced this type of behavior from my truck. You are positive that you are not in 4WD?

I suggest you have your dealer take a look at it, make sure to demonstrate what is happening to the service advisor / technician. If they say "they all do that", make sure they find another 4x4 Armada to show you how that one does the same thing.

I had a tacoma with a limited slip rear diff and it would do that if I did not put LSD additive in the diff oil. Dunno if any of these trucks have LSD?

Sanfer, Never noticed on ours yet, pushing 7K miles Is this when your on Asphalt, hard surface only or will it do this in gravel loose dirt.
Think I would find a lift or jack up front ens and rear separated and do full steering lock on front to isolate diff or drive axles..Should be under warranty do what Camp family suggested.. Keep us posted please.
