4 Wheel Drive not working?

I took my Rubicon to an orv park this weekend I went to climb this small hill and told my gf to snap a few pic and a short video. When I viewed the video I noticed the front tire not spinning. Is my 4x4 not working? However previously it was because when I got to the park I put it in 4 wheel and seen the 4 wheel light come on, I even spun in the mud and felt the rear end doing sideways. Then in deeper mud seen mud flying up from the front tires so I know at some point it was working . But only when I seen this video did I notice it not spinning. https://youtu.be/HXZm2Gq0BjQ

4x4 doesn't mean your tire won't spin, it just distributes the power to all 4 wheels. So in this instance the tire on the other side would have been spinning while the tire you saw was not. When you activate your lockers (4lo only) the rear locks, press again for the front lockers. There will be 2 separate lights on the dash that show you when they're locked. This means that both tires on the axle will spin at the same rate. So still possible to spin, just harder to do.

Just keep hitting the trail and don't be afraid to try out the toys your Rubi came with

EDIT: can't see the video at work, so I'm speculating

Here is our trip Saturday, 4 lo, locked and all 4 tires were just spinning. First time to be stuck. Notice the winch cable on the front pulling me out.

We went threw some pretty thick muddy water , thank god we didn't get stuck it was our first time ever in our new (08) . We asked the guy at the park what would happen if we got stuck or break down out in the mud , would someone help us? His answer was ..How bigs ur wallet...lmao... good times for sure ... Nice Jeep by the way!!
