Default 4x4 problem,

I have a 99 ranger 4.0, 4x4, dont know whats wrong with the 4x4. I put it into 4 hi or 4 low i hear it shift but the front tires do no spin only the rears do. The front driveshaft spins and so do the front axles, but the tires dont, i dont know if its just the auto locking hubs (one is about 4 months old) or something else? it was working fine before i had the wheel bearings replaced. does anybody know what might be wrong?

shop did, but i was tinkering with it last night, had it on 4 axle stands, then i rememberd read about installing manual locking hubs and it said to lock them before you put them on, so i pulled off the automatic hubs locked them put them back on now it works, you would think a shop would be albe to do that but guess not...
