This came to me today while at work, If your drive-shaft and axles are turning while out of 4x4 then it is more than likely that your actuator has gone bad, Hoping that it's not the t/c. Had this happen on a 89 jeep wrangler, assuming they are still the same in 98 ? but if they are the actuator is mounted on the passenger side down on the front housing, If this goes out you either cant get it in 4x4 or you can't get it out but sometimes it might work in between the actuator has the vacum line running to it and its what engages the 4x4.JMO It could also be one of the lines on top of the T/C cracked or came off or the line on the actuator . hope this helps.
