What exactly "just shuts off"? The vehicle, or 4WD? If it is a V8 with AWD, it is full time AWD, there is no way the AWD can shut off.

I do suspect you have some sort of transmission issue, whether it is a mechanical or electrical transmission issue. Unfortunately I know little about the AWD transmission system, just enough to know that it's mechanically an always engaged AWD.
