When you put the truck in to four wheel drive it says that it is in but when you go to move and the truck moves and then when it is under a little stress it like tries to jump out of gear and it makes all kinds of clicking noises and sounds like something is going to break. I think that it might have to do wiht the linkage or maybe the transfer case is not going all the way into gear.

Re: 1995 dodge dakota transfer case problems 3.9L V6
It sounds like you already have a Tooth Broken of of the Main 4X4 Gear inside the Transfer Case. Most Tranny Shops will rebuild these along with Tranny's. You might want to get a Rebuild or at least let them Find out Which Gear is Busted. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

try checking your silinoid. Some of these newer vehicles have an electronic silinoid that is responsible for engaging your transfer case into four wheel drive. Also if you have push button or shift on the fly four wheel drive your switch may have gone bad. I hope this helps you.
Sounds like the selinods is trying to put it into four wheel while moving. 1st, I would unplug the electric connection and have it looked at SOON .It will tear-up your transfer case at the least. It may be the switch is shorting out and sending a signal for it to engage. Don't keep driving it the way it is...will cost you big time !!!!
A Dodge Dakota with 4-wheel steer? Do you happen to mean 4-wheel drive?
If so, you should not operate the vehicle in 4-wheel drive when you are traveling on a hard, high-traction surface. When in 4x4, the transfer case connects the front and rear axles, and does not allow for differentiation of wheel speeds necessary when turning. This is compensated for when driving over low-traction terrain because the tires slip easier.
Basically, the jerking, bucking and locking of the truck is due to the binding. This will eventually lead to damage in the driveline. If the roadway isn't covered in snow, there is no need for the 4 wheel drive to be engaged.
Put the transmission into neutral, then allow the vehicle to roll backwards, this will unbind the transfer case, pull on the shifter while rolling. If that doesn't work, then your linkage under the vehicle has something putting it in a bind. look around and make sure it moves around with slack. Enjoy
