from what youre saying, transfer case problem :(

Sounds like a bent linkage rod. Severely bent linkage rod! (Shortened rod would set case in neutral, then in 2wd when pulled back to 4wd position. Only one way to find out. Get out and get under.

my boss was just talking to a customer about this same thing the other day i build driveshafts and aparently some of the dodge trucks wont move without the front driveline attatcked i dont know why driveshaftsuperstore.com
