Check your linkage on the transfer case. Have somebody shift it while you watch underneath the truck. The linkage could be out of adjustment or bent. Let me know what you find. Phil

SOURCE: Front hubs wont engage
There are two parts to the auto-locking hubs. Inner and outer. Both of them have small tabs on each of the 'cams'. Chances are, they are broken off on the outer hub. When you clean them up real good, you can see them. I believe when the axles turn the outer hub, the inner and outer cams push against spring pressure and lock the unit to the wheel hub. These hubs will break when engaged at higher speeds, especially on a dry tar road.

SOURCE: 4x4 wheel hub locks
It is not advisable to keep the hub locks engaged full time,,because it can cause premature wear,,or even damage,especialy if you drive over 30MPH 50kph

your problem is probably the front axle solenoid. it is in the center of the truck on the front axle and it is really easy to change. Simply unplug the electrical connector and use a wrench to loosen it. Spin it counter clockwise until it comes out........Manual hubs i believe are not available for this truck but i think there is a aftermarket cable you can buy and install to lock the front diff in.
