Question about 1996 Nissan Pathfinder
My first thought would be that you have a brake that is sticking, or dragging, or not fully releasing (on the right, front side). In 2-WD it creates a drag on the right side that causes the vehicle to pull to the right.
In 4wd, the front wheels & all 4 wheels are effectively driven at the same speed, so it compensates for the dragging brake.
I'd start there, and also inspect the cv joints and front drive system to see if there is something out of kilter.
I'd consider front end alignment issues, but does not really sound like that is the issue.
