Hello, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** for the chance to help with your question. Sorry to hear you are having problems engaging the 4wd. Looking in the service manual it looks like there is no adjustment for the cable used in either of the 2 transfer case options for this vehicle. My first suggestion would be to remove the cable itself and check to see if you can climb underneath and manually engage all positions of the transfer case. If this works then I would suspect cable or shifter itselfs. If it does not work this will verify the problem is internal. Let me know if there are any other questions and see what I can do to help.
