Did you check the ease of the actuator rod function? it should turn fairly easy, if it don't then there is a binding inside the transfercase. Could be worn bearings.

neither time was the 4 wheel drive being used. The first time, we parked the truck and the next day it wouldn't go into gear. The 2nd time, after the truck had been parked, the truck wouldn't shift out of 2nd gear and we learned that it was stuck in 4 low. Again, neither time had we put the truck in 4 wheel drive.

Ok, this sounds like you have a possible GEM or an actuator relay problem. Do you have a shop manual on the rig?

Yes! Short in the solenoid actuator... Hopefully this fixed my problem! Thanks!!!
