Re: 4 wheel drive doesnt work
With the car jacked up all four wheels off the ground, please make sure it is secure on axle stans or a ramp. handbrake off engine NOT running try to turn the front propshaft, this is the piece that conects the transfer case to the diferential at this stage you should be able to determine the fault. come back to me with the results.

problem could be transfercase shift control module.or check 10 AMP fuse to the front axle switch since the transfercase module will send a signal to engage front axle then transfercase encoder is mounted to the shift motor so the transfercase control module control shift control motors also transfercase speed sensors.the transfercase assembly complex system work on since every thing electronic controlled.
the samurai doesn't have 2L it has 2H. there are 4 modes on the transfercase. 2H, 4H, N and 4L. 2H engages the rear wheels only while 4H and 4L engages all 4 wheels. N disengages all 4 wheels, useful for flat towing.
If the drive line & wheel shafts fit I don't see an issue except gear ratios. I've never heard of anyone trying but if u know how to read a micrometer and tape measure you'll figure it out. If you do not, I wouldn't attempt it. Good luck.
check on the frontend, some of the chevys have an electricl controlled vaccum actuator that locks the frontend in, it will be close to the punkin. if the vaccum line is off or has a hole in it, it will not engauge in 4 wheel drive. hope this helps
sounds to me like the transfer case clutches are worn out. also the fluid could be low or dirty. try draining and refilling the transfercase with clean fluid. if it is still not working after driving it around for a few miles then you may need to replace or overhaul your transfercase
