the connections near the front axle that activate the motor to engage the system aren't melted? That's a comon problem for that body style. If there good, sounds like it could be that motor itself. To figure out if it's you motor or transfercase, jack up the rear end, have a friend inside shift into 4 wheel drive, or try to, and put it in gear and apply some gas. If the front driveshaft is turning then it's something with the front end. If not, farther back in the system.

Transmission model is 4L60E,and the symptoms you are describing is a common failure on these transmissions all the way back to it's predecesor,the 700 R 4 model.The reverse input shell,splines into the low/reverse planetary sun gear.The reverse input shell has a collar with splines made into it,and these splines are prone to stripping,and sometimes the collar itself will break free from the shell.Without the shell functioning,no reverse,and this is likely what you are hearing.Aftermarket companies sell heavy duty,and standard duty,replacements.Eventually,you will lose the forward gears also.Good luck.

If it's a 1500 then yes the 4l60E tranny is for you. If it's a 2500-3500 you'll need a 4l80E. The 80's are only used in trucks with a gvw or 7200 and greater.

this may be due to a poor connection at the vehicle speed sensor on the transmission, pull the connector off the sensor and clean it with contact cleaner, if the problem persists replace the speed sensor. there are 2 diff ones here is a picture of the most common one for an auto trans.
