Hello Jason,
Yes, I drove it for a few months with no problems. One day I was driving and all the sudden there was no power to the wheels, though I could shift with no problem. I fiddled with the transfer box shifter (what am I to call this other, shorter shifter?) and got it to drive me home. Next time I started it up, I roared out of the driveway only to be stranded on the street in front of my house. No amount of shifting either into any combination of positions would generate any movement.
Never any grinding leading up to this. Selector bush is broken (replacement arrives Wed.), perhaps that prevented me from shifting fully into gear. Also thinking prop shaft spacer may help?

You do not need a propahaft spacer.

Ah, OK. So I wondered about this. Is it just a superfluous part that was designed to fill an unnecessary niche?

You stated you have a lift. This does not change the maximum possible suspension travel from stock. In order to need any changes to the propshaft you would need substantial changes to the suspension travel.

A propshaft spacer is not superfluous. It is designed to fill the gap on a driveshaft that isn't long enough.

Like everyone is saying, either your tcase is in neutral or your tranny is in neutral.

You'll have to get on the ground and dirty mate.
