Default dodge issue need help asap

I have a 1997 dodge ram 1500 4x4 and ever since the last snow storm when i got ice by the vaccums and transfer case it has made a grinding noise when you accelerate. It sounds like it wants to go into 4x4 when it is in 2H. The front saft turns when it is in 2 high and sometimes makes a grinding noise. is this a vaccum problem or a transfer case internal problem? Thanks

What I would do is this....... Jack front wheels off the ground then try to turn them BY HAND. they should go around with the rears on the ground in 2wd. If they do not then the transfer case is not in 2H. On most Dodges '94 and newer the front driveshaft may spin with the tires going around but should "free wheel" with them off the ground. This meaning that even though the front shaft is turning at speed going down the road it should have no "drive" forcing it to turn from the transfer case. Hope this helps. BTM
