It could also be something as simple as U-joints.

put your truck up in the air, then engage 4x4 and see how many wheels spin. start from there.
you can't really diagnose something without it working.

Mine sometimes locks up while in reverse. Then makes a thhumping sound. Sometimes the sound goes away....usually it doesn't anymore....I removed the front driveshaft and it still has the thumping coming from the front drivers side
