4x4 problem ?

ok , i am a little confused as to the drive wheels on my '00 tj

i was out on the lake and got stuck in a snow drift... mostly due to my screwing around too much and being by myself but anyways...

while in 4x4 my front left and rear right were the only wheels turning

my left rear wanted to turn... but only so slightly and might have made the diff of not needing to push it out

i read the vac line issue stickied

but my question is this ? am i in need of a diff rebuild ? should i look for vac lines broken ? or is it working normally

i only have 55k so worn out doesn't seem likely but who knows

also... my 4x4 light DOES NOT come on while engaged, i always assumed it was just burned out

thanks in advance all
wrangler noobie.... had a '00 cherokee but first wrangler 4 me

Your axles aren't locked. If both wheels are not on the ground, the one in the air will spin. Nothing is wrong, it's just the way it works.
