So, you could have one of two problem areas.

1. Truck ........ problem in the transfer case, maybe fresh fluid will fix????

2. Driver knowledge ....... where were you when trying the 4x4? If on a hard dry surface with the wheels turned you were binding the drive-train. You're lucky the truck stalled and didn't break something.
