I took the truck to a 4x4 specialist this morning. He did something I thought was brilliant and cant believe the dealership didn't think to do. He confirmed via sound the transfer case and front axel actuators worked properly, put it in 4x4 and did a full on brake stand in the dirt. Obviously only the back tires spun.
After that he concluded that a look into the front axel/diff was warranted. His initial thoughts are either the actuator works while out of the axel but is tired or does not have the power to push while in the axel as one possible solution. Or the actuator works and the collar that the actuator engages in the diff is broke and the plunger just goes through that. With no obvious noise from the front diff, he initially ruled out something terrible gear wise.
Unfortunately he was booked till next Fri, so he will start ripping it apart then. He had way better common sense and real world knowledge in my opinion than the dealer service manager.

We'll I got the truck to the shop finally. The mechanic deduced that the transfer case is slipping and says I need a new one.
Guess I'll start getting quotes.
