Is it manual 4x4 in the floor?

Yes its a manual shifter .

Pull it in the garage and clean/lubricate the linkage on the transfer case.

Ok i will try that in the morning. Do you think the lubricant in the transfer case could have some water in it and that could possibly be making it freeze up also?

Not likely but possible.I would say it is the linkage freezing up.

Ok i will check that and lubricate it in the morning..Thank you very much..
