Either the linkage to the transfer case is out of whack or something inside the case isn't sliding into place.

Do you have manual or automatic hubs?

I have automatic hubs. I didnt know if it was a vacuum issue or actuator or something else

That could be the issue. I'm not a big fan of auto hubs because I am never sure if they are fully engaged or disengaged!

Hi and a warm Carolina welcome to the best RAM ForumZ on the web. How about posting a few photos of your truck? I hope you can get her up and running again.
