Question about Cars & Trucks
Just disconnect the front drive shaft, and leave it off.. Taking out the transfer case? A lot of work, and you will probably need some new parts for the rear extension housing on the transmission- also, probably a new rear drive shaft, as your present one may be too short. The whole drive train is set up for 4WD-modifying it will cause headaches.
Best bet is to trade it for a 2WD.

I have the same problem. It is intermittent and sometimes shows up with service transmission message. To get rid of it just put the truck in park, press the 2 high button and shift into drive while it is still flashing. I will worry about it more when it blows up. You can drive with the vehicle showing the solid neutral and it seems to make no difference. It has to be a wake up problem between the control modules. It only happens on start up.

Depending on how long the grinding has been going on, the IWE ( integrated wheel ends ) might need to be replaced.
The problem that causes the symptoms is either cracked vac lines from the IWE solenoid, or a faulty IWE solenoid.
Check the vac lines to the IWE, this is the block diagram of the setup
Use a visual inspection and vac tester ( might vac with a gauge on it ) to test the lines.
