Default 4WD... But the 2 Fronts are Weak??

My 4WD TNX 5.2R, all 4 wheels will spin when I have it off the ground. BUT, when I'm driving, it seems only the 2 rear wheels are pushing it. Any ideas what's going on here? Is my tranny done for? I've never taken it apart yet so I don't know what's going on in there. Should power be equal to all 4 wheels?

The front and rear should have equal power. Most likely the problem is in the front diff, loose drive cups coming out of the front diff, or a stripped wheel hex.

Thank you. I'm gonna rip apart the front diff and have a look see.
