    The clunk is the front drive train engaging, and is a normal sound when heard immidately after the button is 4x4 pushed.

    #3 - If you find this one out - let me know - mine does it as well... I suspect the GEM module (on my 3rd one!)

    #5 - 4 low typically only shifts when in neutral - not when in gear or park. Try that.

    You might also have a case where the 4x4 system hasn't been used enough to keep it properly lubed - and it is sticky. I generally recommend changing the T-case oil (about 2 quarts of Dextron III) and then getting somewhere off the highway (wet grass or snow is perfect) where the tires can slip a tad - and engage 4x4 - then run the truck around some to lube everything up.
