Sounds like you got it. They are heavy and ocward (spelling?). As for the front drive shaft take the bolts out and give it a couple of wacks with a dead blow hammer then slide it out. Maybe a few days before hand give it a good spray down with wd40 or like product. Also when you get to the last bolt for the t-case to trans loosen it half way then put a drain bucket under it and seperate it a little and let the trans fluid drain some, or you will be wearing it.

Several things could cause this since it is auto 4wd and controlled by a COMPUTER! Start the simplest, cheapest troubleshooting first; the electrical and computer system contact plugs and points.
1. it could be cracked solder connections inside the push button switch - try to re-solder or replace the switch.
2. possibly the encoder motor is bad. It is on the side of the Tcase and turns a shaft to shift the case. - try getting one from a scrapyard and swap it, much cheaper than new.
3. The computer module failed, or the contact from the plug to the plug pins is corroded. - first try to unplug and plug back in a few times to make a good contact. if that fails to work, get a used one from the scrapyard and swap it ($50 compared to a new one $500!) Get some cleaning\lube spray from Radio shack for computer terminals to keep from corroding.
4. It could be that you just have a bad connection in the 4wd wiring system. That was my case, it was just the plug connection at the computer module and has been working ever since, and now I have a spare computer module sitting on the workbench.

The computer module is the biggest pain to get to. It is buried in the dash behind the headlight and push button 4wd switch. Good luck!

On my buddies 1994 1500, those were all on the same fuse. we found out because his ecm fuse blew, and the only one big enough listed the power windows, and radio. Then we found out it also ran the 4x4 when he couldn't get out of the snow.

You're going to have to bleed the system alot on those trucks. Just remove the return line and have an assistant turn the steering wheel back and forth just enough to engage the pump and filling the resevour while doing this. Keep bleeding until you have a good flow of P/S fluid out with no air bubbles. This can take a while.

Easiest thing to do is ONE AT A TIME, Remove BOTH DRUMS and just use one to do the other...

Just remember that they pull from the FRONT to BACK on the Hardware

Recommend you take PICTURES before so you can have something to look at

Sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing. Jack the truck up so the tire is off the ground. Take a long bad or pipe and try to move the wheel up and down. If you get any play in it then the wheel bearing is bad and needs to be replaced.
