no 4wd!!

im having problems with my jeep, A while ago i removed my front driveshaft cause a joint was making noise. I wasnt offroading at the time so i left it off thinking that ill fix it someday. Well that someday happened to be last saturday when some old friends went mudding. So i slapped it back on and reversed down the driveway and noticed that the tires werent screaching like they do in 4wd(turning), so i jack the rear end in the air and put it in 4low with the front tires and the floor and released the clutch, just the rear tires were spinning and no power was getting to the front diff. It engages 4 low with the correct gear ratio but there is no power being supplied to the front wheel. Driveshaft is not spinning. It was working when i pull the driveshaft a while back. Any ideas??

I see in your sig you have a Ford 8.8 in the rear, what in the front?

Was this "noise" happening in 4x4 and stopped when you took off the DS? Maybe I'm reading the post wrong, but it sounds like you were running in 4x4 constantly and took off the DS to get a noise to go away.

If not, it's prolly the transfer case. If you have a locking front diff, put it in 4l and lock it and see if she crawls. If so, then it's a wheel bearing or an axle. If not, it points you back to the tcase.

I don't know of a good way of troubleshooting the tcase. Maybe someone else does.
