The transfer case on a AWD unit has a device that is referred to as a viscuss coupling and the issue comes in when you run a different size tire on any axle versus the others. Due to it being awd and the spare was probably a smaller overall diameter than the other tires. When this happens it causes two different turning speeds from one axle vs the other and burns out the clutches in the viscuss coupling.. You may not have destroyed it but odds are its gonna cause vibrations and drivelline chatter once you get it back on the road and the awd will prob not operate properly. you are going to probably have to have the tcase overhauled or replaced..
Hope this answered your questions
