Should be 2 belts. Which one did you break?
If it is the larger one there is a tentioner to your left of the center of the engine as you are facing the engine, somwhat centered relative all the other stuff there. With everthing tight in the engine compartment it took me a couple of minutes to recognize it.
If it is the smaller fan belt, I had to take the fan off and adjusted it the old way, with a pry bar. Off to your right of the center of the engine as you face the engine there are 3 bolts kinda grouped together. I donot recall which one you loosen, but one of these will give you slack, use a pry bar to snug the beld up good, then tighten (while holding tight). Reassemble the fan.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 4 Wheel Drive Problem
Put the key in the run position and turn your 4wd on and off to listen for the electronic acuator to engage and disengage. If your can hear it then it's macanical and a Quick fix. On top of the transfercase on the driver's side, your going to find three vacuume tube connected to a cauume switch that may have gone bad. There common to go bad and there not the bad of a price at the Auto Zone. Check for any cracks on the vacuume line first then get your hands dirty. Good luck and keep an extra switch in your glove box.

I suggest visiting autozone.com and register the truck there. It's free and will give you access to an online repair manual. The vacuum diagrams should be available there. Hope this helped and best wishes.
