Wrong on no bad "switches" or "shift motors".
Doesn't matter if you have a manual t-case, or an electronic one. A manual t-case can fail.
Either way, it's all about hubs for engagement. Hence why I have Warn manual hubs on the Ranger, and POSI LOCK A.D.S. (FTW) on the Dodge.
I think you are asking too much for your truck there OP, and definitely not giving enough info on it either. How many miles? Recent maintenance? Possible fouls with it?
