When it won't move: does the engine lug down, or rev up freely like Neutral? If it lugs: do the back wheels strain to go forward, and then roll back when you let off? If so - the rear brakes are stuck, and you're wrapping up the springs. In this case, DON'T gag on it in 4L - you could break something.

Remove the rear driveshaft. Will the trans engage and turn the output of the transfer case? Will the truck roll freely? Before removing the driveshaft make sure the wheels are chocked AND the parking brake is on.

FWIW,
I'm seeing parking brakes that springs are gone, rotted thru, brake linings completely delaminated. I also see that virtually all, hinged actuator levers are seized at the hinge pin. This is designed so when the cable pulls on the end outside, it pushes the leading shoe into the " hat inside if the rotor ( a de facto brake drum ). Once shoe stops traveling foreword as it contacts that surface, the lever hinges pushing out the trailing shoe.
Trust me, when that puppy stops hinging, binding, shoes delaminate, springs rot,,,that's it Jack...It can drag HARD!! or make a no go sitcheation.

Gave it another shot this evening with an extra set of eyes and you can see the drive shaft move a bit. Buddy who was looking thinks the rear brakes may be locked up. I do use the truck to launch a boat in sal****er which would speed up corrosion obviously. I've sprayed some WD40 into the drums to see if I can get these to loosen up. Any other thoughts?

Might try the transfer case in low to see if you can move. Are you certain the transfer case isn’t in neutral?

With the transmission in Park, does the truck hold still? That is, could a person or another vehicle push/roll the truck while it's in Park?
