the four wheel drive uses vacuum hub locks. there is a vacuum solenoid on the passenger firewall in front of the battery box. sounds like you need a updated solenoid and possibly one or both hub locks. what happens is the old style solenoid vent allows water to get in and the hub locks freeze or stop working because of the water. the new style has a cover over the vent to prevent water from getting in.

HI. the most important issue here is to make sure the transmission fluid is at a optimal level. If the fluid level is good, it can be another problem that is causing this disruption. The second place i would check would be the transmission shift cable and linkage. if you have some play in the shifter, this could be the issue. the linkage and cable may need to be adjusted. The last problem spot with this tranny could be bad or malfunctioning shift solenoids. these devices receive signals from the emc that initiates the shift action once you use the shifter. if one of these solenoids are malfunctioning, it can cause a disruption of normal shifting. i would check these areas.
please rate and god bless...

I believe that reverse is operated by a brake band. So it seems to be stuck. It is operated by a piston, and the seal could have swelled and caused too much friction. But you could loosen up the adjustor so that it is disengaged, in order to get forward gears again. Perhaps you can force the piston to retract as well, once you drop the pan again.

Transfer case and shift linkage need servicing. Sometimes customers have gotten away with just a simple lubrication.... others a rebuild.

You can try shifting into manual 1 to get moving then once you get going shift the lever up into Drive. This should work, then drive it to a shop to have your ****** looked at.
