Unhappy Transmission slipping. Alot worse in 4wd mode

I have a 99 4wd ranger 4.0 and i bought it used. I know some work has been done on the transmission replaced a couple times because a youngan had it and dogged it. Ive had it 4 yrs with no problems but always noticed that when in 4 low all 4 tires would not spin but would pull just enough to get me out of a jam. I literally dont know anything about the 4wd on this truck. Anyway noticed that lately it takes longer to get thru the gears and smelled like cluch burning so pulled off road engaged 4wd and was definately slipping. Ive read some stuff on here and might try changing tran fluid-filter today. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
