Most likely you snapped the 4WD chain in the transfer case. Put it in 4WD go in reverse with the wheel turned if the vehicle does this smoothly than your 4WD is not engaged.

Truck goign into 4wd lo while driving

It's the 4X4 locking mechanism engaging - most likely a wiring fault or control fault.

Put a voltage monitor on while driving and see if it is related to a voltage spike i the system. This would be like 16.5V +

This truck should not be operated on the street in 4WD mode. You need to investigate the front axel CV axel shafts as well as the outer axel carrier bearings. Damage to front brake rotors and possible lock down while operating the vehicle. Safety hazard exist, so do not drive until axel and bearings are checked and repaired

When switching my truck from 2wd to 4wd, a grinding noise can be heard. The 4x4 only fully engages when i come to a complete stop. Is this a air switch problem or an acuator?

Is it meant to switch from 2 to 4 wheel drive when its moving? if it is then I'd make sure the transmission oil is of good quality and upto the proper level. not a solution just you should do this before suspecting anything else.
