if it has the tod transfer box it will be the clutch pack in the transfer box. tyres not being a full matching set can cause it and it can also be the transfer box clutch pack sticking due to incorrect oil. remove the tccs fuse and try it.

it is the transfer box engaging 4x4, check the tyres, you must have a matching set, if two of them are a bit more worn then put these on the back. it is critical that the ones with the largest rolling radius is on the back if they are not a matching set, also change the transfer box oil. it has to be genuine kia transfer box oil or dextron III with friction modifier added, the friction modifier is the important bit.

The tyres with the largest rolling radius will be the least worn.

2008 has different wiring to pre facelift ones. You will find removing the TCCS fuse will light dash lights up as it will also effect ABS braking plus other circuits. With your model you need to wire up the system to fool the TOD unit it is still working.

I cannot advise on numbers. Why not repair the one you have as buying second hand box is probably also shot so you not gain anything.
