4wd not working

I recently bought a 92 yj straight 6 with the np231 transfer case. I decided that it would be a good idea to go exploring a little one night and ended up snapping my slip yoke to the rear drive shaft in half. I tried throwing it in 4wd and nothing happened hopped out and looked to see what was going on and the front drive shaft would spin but wasnt catching inside the axle. Any ideas on what it may be? Any help on what it may be or how to fix it is greatly appreciated.

I should chime in on the three solutions for this problem and their pros and cons but I just wanted to note that I lost this thread when I moved it from the registry. OP may not be able to find it.

Ya I posted on another section in this forum and a couple ppl told me solution for making the cad basically a solid axle by eliminating the vaccum lines and moving the fork in the shift motor over and I'd be able to switch freely into 4wd

I did this but I bought the posi lock cable actuator and installed that so I can pull it to turn on or turn it off. I am thinking about going to solid axles or a whole new axle set up in the future so I don't have to worry about this
