If front shaft is turning t case is in 4wd. May need a linkage adjustment.

The previous owner could have swapped in one piece axle shafts, that would make the front drive line to spin always.

Yes, I have a one piece axle shaft, and the drive shaft spins. try jacking up your jeep, both front wheels off the ground at same time. and spin the tires they should be independent of each other

I know on my 91 yj, the front axle is supposed to spin in 2wd, thats with the vaccum system, yours is probably fine., like tom said, just jack it up if your font wheel spins you transaxle shift linkage is messed up.
