My 2001 ford f150 4x4 is not engaging into four wheel drive. Its an electronic shift. When I shift into 4-wheel drive, it sound like its engaged ( low torge power) but front wheels are not spinning. Any idea what is happening here? I got stuck in mud while white wing hunting this past weekend.

When that happened on my '91 Explorer I pushed the 4X4 button and marked the
front driveshaft with white chalk and drove it forward a little to verify
that the front shaft was turning. It turned out to be autohub failure. I
now have manual hubs. I would have thought they would have fixed that
problem by 2001.
