Check your hubs...have them both locked in. Put your transfer case in 4 LO or 4 HI.

Had a similar problem with mine, BUT my truck is a 1998 with the Pulse Vacuum Hubs. Here is what I did,,, ALL of my vac hose looked good, but something was "plugged" up at the hubs probably from rust. I found this on line, instead of buying the manual lock outs, this is free and does the same thing. Literally took me 15 minutes to do!! Supposed to work on the PVH hubs only for years 1998-2000. I guess it works for the the Exploders {Explorers} too. Here is the link.....
