Default 99 2 dr tracker loss of 4wd

My wife made a comment about how she thought she lost 4wd in her Tracker. Since I had the truck on jack stands to replace the exhaust I checked into it. I started it up and put it in gear and 4 hi. I have no drive in the front wheels but the front driveshaft is indeed spinning. I didn't check any further since I needed to complete the exhaust. Where should I go from here?

yes, front hubs. I'd start there.

They are probably just froze in the place from not enough use.

Aren't they fixed hubs just like my 99 XJ? If so, is there some kind of actuator in the front axle?

theres an electric switch that engages the front wheels when put in 4x4. Most people dont have a problem with them, could just be a wiring issue. check out zukiworld.com. there has been some talk on there about it .

Thanks for the hook-up. Scottie had referred me to Zuwharrie.com and I was able to find a thread referring to this issue. I was also able to download the FSM. Now I just need a warm dry place to check things out. Thanks for the help.
