Have you checked the tcase linkage? I bet your linkage is damaged thus you are not actually shifting your rig out of 2H.

Sort of i can feel it go in gear( high and low ) physically checking it it looks right... its got a 4 in 2" body lift i used the 4x4 earler this week when we first got snow and iv sence let it set in a warm grage and dry out and i didn't really play in the snow when i used it i just drove to work.... ots like it worked one day and quit the next... thats why i checked all the fuses and looked for a vacuum line off but iv had no luck fixing or finding any thing wrong with it....

There is no vacuum or electrical gizmos that need to work to engage 4x4, that is strictly a mechanical function that happens solely by pulling the transfer case lever into 4Hi or 4Lo. I suspect your t-case linkage has simply slipped out of adjustment, which often happens after installing a body lift.

The fix only requires that you get under your Jeep with a 1/2" wrench & have someone work the t-case lever while you watch to see how it works. Once you figure it out, you'll see the bolt with the 1/2" head on it. Loosen that bolt, slide the bracket back up the shift rod a tad until it can pull the t-case shift lever far enough to engage 4x4 & then tighten the bolt securely.
