Have the accuator checked on front axle, they are common problem on gm 4wheel drive, they are not to expensive, do not go to salvage yard, you might buy one that is as bad as what you have, they only take about 15 minutes to change.

Being that you have dash switch, they are a problem , also if you have hoist at your use, put truck on and try to see if you can put it in four wheel drive while running and see if front driveshaft is turning, if so then you have front axle problem, if not then problem is in transfer case.
