Default Transfer Case Issues?

I just traded my 2wd 99 s-10 for a 94 1500, sitting on a 89' chassis. Everything runs fine for the most part (needs oil change bad, half-ass slips when going into 2nd, little stuff). But I'm not for sure if my transfer case is in good shape.
1) I have no idea if 4 high even works: The shifter is sitting in between 2high and 4high, and its in 2 wheel. I cant feel it engage if i go straight into 2high or 4high.
2)If i put it into the 2high spot, it puts itself in neutral, and if i got into neutral, it grinds like a motherf*cker.

4low works great though.

If anyone has any insight, I'd appreciate the help. This is my first 4x4 vehicle.

It could be as simple as the linkage is out of adjustment,especially since you say the body has been swaped to a different frame.Does it have a body lift?
I would unhook the shifter and move the t-case from 4low to 2 hi using a small wrench on the case itself.See if you can feel each detent,you should be able to feel it going from one to the other smoothly.If not, it's a bent range selector fork,or something in the case.
Put the case in 4hi,with the linkage un hooked,drive it to see if it is in 4 hi.If you get 4hi,adjust the linkage to suit your needs,it might end up that it says netral,when you are in 4hi,deal with it,and welcome to wrenchin on your first 4x4.

Thanks, I really appreciate it. I started monkeying around with it today after class and got it to go into 2hi, 4hi, and 4low. It still grinds going from neutral to 2hi, but I'll deal with it till I go home for spring-break.
Yeah, it's got a 3" body lift.
Thanks for the advice!
