all time four wheel drive not working

i have a 04 wj with the the quadra-drive. with it in 4 all time my fron axle is not working. when u put it in 4 low it works fine. I had a feeling that it was not working so the last time it snowed I chained the jeep to a pole and tried it in both 4 high and 4 low. Only the rear tires spun in 4 high and in four low all four tires spun. does any one have any ideas what it could be

You do have limited slip, but even still, at least one of the front wheels should have been spinning. I have a 247 that has defaulted to rear wheel drive too. Im in the market for 242 to replace it with.

sounds like the PC has gone in your NP247. can be replaced but expensive. Just rebuilt my 249 but was expensive to do. Most people would say to do the swap to the 242, but i like the 249. Wish a 247 would fit my 98zj, i would put that in.
