1999 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Question: My transfer case doesn't work

My font pinion bearing in my front diff. froze up and when I activated my four wheel drive at 45 miles an hour the truck felt like the brakes were put on and I smelled clutches burning. I replaced the front diff. and now my transfer case will move the front wheels if the truck is on jacks,but on the ground it will not turn the front wheels. I heard that 4 low was a direct drive but it still will not spin the front wheels on the ground. I know that the clutches are bad, but could there be another problem. I'm sure I can rebuild it myself, but would it be worth it cost wise or should I buy a rebuilt one? Thanks Jeff Horton
