Front Axle not Locking

So I'm still learning alot, bear with me please. I have a 1994 ZJ with the 5.2L. What would be the first couple things I check if my front axle won't lock in? It's supposed to be 4x4 all the time, but all i get is power to the rear wheels, even in 4Low.

Re: Front Axle not Locking

Is the front propeller shaft in place? Many times its removed due to some failure.
If its in place, then my first thoughts go to the T-case. Not sure which T-case is in your jeep, but it probably has a chain drive in it. The chain can stretch too much and skip the teeth.
