Am i doing something wrong or do I have to go into the dealer and play the stupid girl then give them hell when I get the runaround?
I think you misunderstood the manual. The neutral button is to put the transfer case in neutral for flat towing, like behind a motorhome.
Select neutral with the transmission shifter to shift into 4WD LOCK.

So unfortunately, I need some body work done on the truck, so its up there getting the 4wd checked and a free oil change as well. Can't wait to hear what type of 'shes a girl we can tell her anything' answer i get. I know for a fact my 4lo and 4lock are not engaging.

dont worry about the "shes a girl we can tell her anything". If the trucks under warranty and it aint working right, they gotta fix it. it doesnt matter if the owner is a guy, girl, or pat from saturday night live. post the outcome

To engage 4LO, you need to have the transmission in Neutral, while the truck is slowly rolling, as you select 4LO. When you tried 4LOCK, did the light come on on the dashboard?

Yes, I did neutral at a slow roll and nothing engaged. The light comes on on the dashboard but the wheels do not engage. I have witnesses to the fact that all my wheels don't spin. Waiting to hear back from the dealer today, hoping i can take it home tonite!

When you try to engage 4 Lock, the dash light comes on solid? What do you mean by "all my wheels don't spin?" Does just 1 front wheel spin while the other seems to do nothing, or do both front wheels do nothing while either or both of the rear wheels spin?

For 4hi i can put it in on a roll but for 4lo i need to come to a complete stop, put the truck in neutral with the gear shift, select 4lo on the dial and wait a couple seconds to enage...to get it back out same process. I never have enaged 4lo on the fly or even on a roll.
