The 4x4 switch probably is the problem. There were many updates to the part and many TSB'* on it. If it acts up again even in warm weather I would throw a switch at it.

not limited slip. locking diff and both front and rear take non-lim slip. gm has a tsb on this too as limited slip fluid can damage your diff

the online manual doesnt list parts for most things, and the gm parts sites dont want you taking the number either it seems
