I know that you can have a transfer case but for the transfer case to work do you need to have the Wheel drive enabled at 1 or no?

You also need an axle section:
Code:
meshwheels2
;tire_radius, rim_radius,width,numrays,node1,node2,snode,braked,propulsed, arm, mass, spring, damping, side, meshname material
0.35, 0.233, 0.265, 14, 44, 46, 9999, 4, 1, 131, 46.0, 100000.0, 900.0, r, rimz.mesh burnwheelband
0.35, 0.233, 0.265, 14, 45, 47, 9999, 4, 1, 134, 46.0, 100000.0, 900.0, l, rimz.mesh burnwheelband
set_beam_defaults 3300000, 90, 2000000, 2500000
set_node_defaults -1, 1.14, -1, -1
0.35, 0.233, 0.265, 14, 66, 67, 69, 1, 1, 62, 46.0, 125000.0, 900.0, r, rimz_r.mesh burnwheelband
0.35, 0.233, 0.265, 14, 69, 70, 67, 1, 1, 63, 46.0, 125000.0, 900.0, l, rimz_r.mesh burnwheelband

axles
w1(44 46), w2(45 47), d(lso)
w1(66 67), w2(69 70), d(lso)

transfercase
;default driven axle, alternate axle, has 2wd mode, has 2wd lo mode
2, 1, 1, 0
I guess this should be specified in the documentation.

I am having the same problem with the 2003 Windstar but I have the axle section on it and it still does not let me have 2x4 and 4x4

Here is the wheel and axle sections for it

Try moving the axles/transfercase section directly below meshwheels, above the flexbodies:
Code:
meshwheels2
;radius,width,numrays,node1,node2,snode,braked,propulsed,arm,mass,spring,damping,facemat bandmat

0.34, 0.40, 0.1, 12, 169, 170, 9999, 4, 1, 82, 100.0, 300000.0, 500.0, l, RockStars.mesh windstar_trans
set_node_defaults -1,-1,-1,-1
0.34, 0.40, 0.1, 12, 175, 176, 9999, 1, 1, 158, 100.0, 300000.0, 500.0, r, RockStars.mesh windstar_trans
0.34, 0.40, 0.1, 12, 181, 182, 9999, 1, 1, 82, 100.0, 300000.0, 500.0, l, RockStars.mesh windstar_trans

Surprised I didn't notice this earlier, but your second axle syntax is incorrect:
w2(175 176), w2(181 182), d(sl)
should be:
w1(175 176), w2(181 182), d(sl)
