Default Weird new issue

Okay so I went to back out of my driveway today and when I started driving I noticed my truck was really jumpy, almost like it's in 4 low, and as I started driving I heard a whining noise go faster as I went faster so I stopped and went back home, the whine sounds like the 4lo whine, I put truck in neutral and tried switching my **** back and forth to get in 2wd, took for test drive...same noise and jerkyness, I jacked up rear end and blocked front tire, 1st I grabbed front drive shaft and tried to twist it as it should in 2wd, but I could only move it back and forth about 1-2 inches. Then I started truck and put in drive, rear tires spin perfect without the whine, front drive shift wasn't spinning like its supposed to, then I hopped in and tapped the gas as it was still in drive, then my whole truck jerked like it was in 4lo and I heard the noise... Truck can still spin back tires. It seems like my truck is in 2wd, but it thinks it's in 4lo so it has its jerkyness. I have no clue what to do

Shops will diagnose it for 35-100. You can fix it on your own once you know what's wrong.

Maybe it has something to do with this issue?

In that post you said your shift motor was at fault, maybe you didn't fix it properly / it went out? IDK.

99% of 4x4 issues with ESoF are GEM issues.

i think it might have to do with the t case itself, I put a new one in "new to me" and now it does this
