    Auto hubs?

    If so, that'd be my first guess if you get gear reduction through the transfercase.

    How do you know you didn't have 4wd? Front axle is an open, so only one wheel is going to spin if you have little traction.

    Get some manual locking hubs. That will probably solve your problem, at least that will make you stop wondering if your auto hubs are doing there job.
