If you have autolocking hubs, they may be froze up or bearings are seized. They are much easier than manual hubs but are more prone to seizing up. They will likely have to be replaced. Check that axle and boots are good.

I have replaced all the actuators and transfer case switches on my 1998 chevy 4x4 and the front differential wont engage any information on what I am missing

check to see if you have automatic hub locking. These units can be vacuum or electric operated and are prone to failure of the system

2003 GM 2500HD 6L A/T manual shift 261 NP t-case. My 4X4 stopped working, no noise, nothing. I checked the front actuator, it's fine. Transfer case shifts fine, but does not engage... any ideas?

there may be a vacuum line that engages the hubs, that has came off, it has happened to me before, get under it and look for a loose vacuum line near the transfer case
