Did you ever try to manually lock your hubs?

Sounds like a vac leak, or maybe the PE switch for the front hubs

if you remove the 3 bolts holding the transfer case motor to the transfer case, then grab a 9/16 wrench and turn the shaft coming out of the transfer case(one click 4hi 2 4lo) You can manually do this. Its a pain. Once you do this you should no longer be ablt to spin the front drive shaft by hand. Its engaged to the transmission now, via the chain in the case. If you do this and drive it in 4 hi, you will know that the tc is good and its the 150 dollar motor that went bad. If you cant switch it manually into 4wd(still does not work) its the transfer case bad or both.
