drivetrain problem

I have a 1989 wrangler, and today on my way to work I heard a clunk........clunk.........clunk every 50 feet at around 70mph. I then pulled over to see what it could be, could not do a good check being that it was raining real bad. I then went to go in first gear and as I let go of the clutch nothing but rattling noise and the truck hardly moves. It will jolt forward real hard like I popped the clutch if I kept my foot on the gas. Got the truck towed to the house, and tried some trial and error. The drive shaft to the front wheel is not on (from previous owner). Shifter set to 2wd. NOW!!!!! When I put it into neutral or 4wd low (last one at the bottom) it will drive with no rattling/grinding noise but feel like lose of power like clutch is slipping. In 2wd or 4wd high it will rattle/grinding and won't move. I can fully let go of the clutch in first gear and it won't shut off. Your help is greatly appreciated!!!!!

You think? Because like I said when I change out of the 2wd to 4wd the truck will move. How does the transfer case effect the clutch?

I asume since i have a 4 inch lift and the tranny is dropped so i can still use the stock drive shaft (i bought the jeep like that)(and im new to the jeep world) caused the oil to leak out little buy little and ran it dry enought till it finally gave out. And i was running it on 2 wheel drive because the front shaft is not connected
