Check your transfer case motor, get someone under the truck wen u put it in 4wd to make sure it's actually working. If not I think it's 3 0r 4 bolts that hold it on. Very easy fix

Try locking the hubs manually. Mine won't work off vacuum at the moment, 4x4 light comes on but the fronts won't spin unless manually locked.

Not hard, they're expensive to buy tho.
I recommend replacing with WARN manual lockers, and capping off the vacuum lines.
