Front driveshaft not spinning

I recently installed a 4x4 posi-lok in my yj, thinking it was the issue with my 4x4. Since installing it, I have yet to have my 4x4 working. I thought it may be the shift fork, but had a buddy look under, and saw that when the cable was engaged, the shaft spun. However, when only engaging the T-case, there was no movement.
The t-case still goes in low range and shifts through fine, but no power is going to the front driveshaft. Also, the t-case is fairly new (about a year and a half old) and I can't think of what issue may be. Any advice is appreciated!!

Something is wrong with the transfer case. Broke chain maybe?

Check this link out it will let you know more about your t case. Now the chain is hard to snap, along the years it will get some slack which in turn will cause it to pop horribly everytime you engage the t case, but thats not the case here. This problem with the t case not engaging is most likely due to the fact that the range fork is worn out and might not make it engage, you will have to open the t case in order to fix this, its not that hard to fix, I consider prying open the case the hardest thing, but other than that its pretty simple, search around here to see if theres a writeup on t case rebuild.
