Last night, a buddy and I got stuck in a pretty bad hole because, at that precise moment, we couldn't get the Jeep ('95 YJ) to shift into 4wd. The 4wd light on the dash would light up, but neither of the front wheels would turn.
Could this be a transfer case problem, and if so, what's the best way to fix this problem?

Was the front driveline turning? If so, it isn't likely a transfer case problem. If you've been around the forum much, you've probably read about all the trouble with the vaccuum lines and switch on the front axle. I would start there; buy a manual, search in this forum, or find somebody who's worked on YJ's and check out the connections and switch (i can't remember the actual name of it ) that locks the front in 4-wheel drive.
