I think you have blown your rear diff.......Also, seems like your front actuator isnt engaging

-if transmission is in neutral, the rear drive shaft is free to turn (check)
-if in 4hi, or lo, turning rear driveshaft should turn the front (check)
-if the rear driveshaft is turned, one rear wheel should turn (both might turn, one forward, one rearward) (no check)
-if front driveshaft is turned, one front wheel should turn (other wheel same as rear) (no check)
Ok, what happens if we are still on jack stands and we are still in 4hi and neutral and we turn one of the rear wheels (have someone hold the other wheel to keep it from turning)?
Also try this with the front wheels. The front has an axle disconnect on the passenger side. It should be engaged and front should act the same as the rear.Ray

It dose sound like a blown rear diff. if T/case is driving in 4 low it should also be driving in 4 high. if you shift from 2wd to 4wd the truck must move several feet for the front hubs to engage. i would pull the rear diff cover for inspection before any thing else. easy to do and will give you better info.

True, but most work together in order to drive front & rear at the same rpm. i'm guessing this is a new venture 241 due the manual shift. in order for it to drive in 4low only i would expect some striped splines. i am not a gear expert so i called my guy who is and he confirmed it. possible, but highly unlikely. it was said fluid was clean with no debris and rear tires do not turn with rear drive shaft. i believe in the 93's if the front axle connector gear splines are not aligned with the axles some movement is needed for complete engagement. given the info i have been given, if it were me, i would pull the rear diff cover. yes it is an excellent idea to make sure you can add fluid before you pull it.

I would like to clarify why i would be looking at rear diff first. I hope i cover every thing correctly.sorry in advance for the long post.
Ok, your driving down the highway and bang! now your not. you say "crap" coast to the side of the road and scratch your head. then, hey lets try 4wd.shift to 4hi, nothing.(MAYBE THE FRONT ACTUATOR HASN'T WARMED UP YET) crap, more head scratching. hey, how bout 4low? ( NOW ITS WARM & AXLES LOCKED) you shift and THANK GOD I'M MOVING! you drive home park on a hill, put it in park & turn it off. crap! i'm rolling! (NO POWER TO FRONT ACTUATOR AXLES UNLOCK, BLOWN REAR DIFF NOTHING TO HOLD IT) put it on stands, all 4 in the air with trans in neutral, key off. (NO POWER, FRONT ACTUATOR DISENGAGES). you turn the rear drive shaft and both shafts turn, good, but no tires turn.( MAYBE THE FRONT AXLES ARE UNLOCKED, BUT NO REAR TIRES TURNING? UH OH!) (NO DEBRIS IN T/CASE FLUID). at this point I would pull the rear diff cover before i would suspect T/case. less work to pull diff cover than remove the T/case and open it up.

Remains of the rear diff - looks like the spider gears didn't like their home anymore
Hopefully I can find a complete rear axle cheap enough to swap in there, probably the easiest route to take?
Thanks everyone for your input

even if you buy a used complete axle I would still recommend replacing all the bearings in it before installing or driving it. If you are getting i from a junk yard you have no idea how long it has sat there with no oil in it. you also need to make sure that the gear ratio is the same as the one that is broken.
