Default 4 Wheel drive problems- 1993 GMC Sierra 6.5 Turbo Diesel 1 ton. (Crew cab-dually)?

When 4 wheel drive is engaged, there is a consistent surging (surge-surge-surge-surge), especially when going up a hill or accelerating. Also if I'm in an area that is not as slick with snow/ice (I'm getting a little more traction), the truck is becomes almost uncontrollable. It fights me to the left and if I correct with a little force to the right- the truck suddenly wants to veer to the right....and visa-verse. It's a constant battle and quite scary, but when I'm not in 4 wheel drive, I don't have these problems. Any insight?

Are all the tires the same make, model, size and wear? If you have different tires side to side or front to rear this will cause these issues.
