    1st thing check the linkage on your transfer case. A screw can come loose and then it just slides along a rod under there. Easy to have someone move the linkage and you watch it to see.

    Rusty, initally it sounds like you have a bad vacuum shift motor. While it might not be the motor itself, it may be the lines. Here are some things that I found out there on the interweb:

    Similar Issue

    Posi-Lock if you want to ditch the vacuum shift motor entirely.

    Also, I checked with Bryan and he said to double check the vacuum hoses- they should lead to somewhere along the firewall.

    Here are some ebay listings to look at if you do want to replace or repair the vacuum shift parts.

    Good luck and hopefully someone else around here has had some knowledge on your problem.

    So did you ever figure out what it was, Rusty?
