Just got done servicing my axles, which included replacing the pinion seal on the front axle (which meant dropping the driveline). Upon taking it for a test drive, realize that I'm in 4wd even though the shifter is all the way forward. It gets weirder. I think the case was just bound up, I jacked up the front end and the front axle does indeed turn free in 2wd and N, but the indicators are now exactly 1 detent off -- part time indicated when in 2wd, full time indicated when in part time, N indicated when in full time, etc. There was never any forcing or binding, there are no corroded parts, everything looks fantastic. Shifter feels exactly as it always has. Any ideas?

Did you check the cable at the transfer case?

There is a plastic bushing that holds the end of the cable to the T-case lever. This bushing is a POS and will disintegrate over time and fall off. The last time I looked online don't sell just that part, they want you to buy a whole new shifter cable + bushing. I made my own bushing + a C-ring washer to lock it on.

There is a simple fix for this! You can purchase all the parts at a hardware or builders supply.

Only three parts required: a small bushing, a spring wave washer, and a hitch pin clip.
Note: You can make your bushing out of a small piece of steel tubing with the correct ID & OD.
This repair has been on mine for a couple of years now with NO issues.
