    Check your front drive shaft again. I had that happen to me and I had to leave my Blazer stuck overnight and walk 6 miles to get help. It was weird because when I had it on a frame rack the front axle would drop down enough to where the spline caught eonugh to where it appeared OK. When it was sitting on all 4's a friend crawled under and found the shaft slipping on me. The entire spline didn't strip out, only part of it, probably when I was going through a mud hole and it was extended.

    Just a thought.
