I would say the IWE ( Integrated Wheel Ends ) solenoid is causing you a problem.
The 04-06 MY trucks have a TSB on the IWE solenoid, where water can be ingested into the vacuum lines to the IWEs.

http://my.voyager.net/~sscully/file_tsb06_08_15.pdf

Operationally vacuum holds the IWE ( Integrated Wheel Ends ) out, and once vac is removed the spring engages the IWE.

If you are having an issue with the vacuum being released when shifting into 4WD, this could be the lag from switch to lock in, or it could be a plugged vent line from the IWE vacuum shut off by IWE solenoid, but nowhere to vent to ).
The grinding after shifting back into 2H could be the IWE solenoid not pulling the IWE gears back out ( the grinding noise is part of the TSB ).

Could also be a problem with the IWE itself, if the same side is not shifting into locked position, and back out ( getting held up on something ?? )

This is a block diagram of the IWE vacuum system.

How to shift into 4wd


Ford has 2 types of 4x4 system engagement. One is a knob on the dash that you just turn to 4wheel drive high or low. The other system is the 4x4 transfer case shift on the transmission tunnel (hump) between the driver and passenger seats. To shift into 4 wheel drive high while driving, just let off the gas and shift transfer case into 4H position, and continue driving. To shift into 4 wheel drive Low, stop the vehicle completely, put transmission in neutral, shift transfer case into 4Low position, put trans. in gear, and start driving. I am assuming before doing the above, you have locked in ( turned the front hubs to 4 wheel drive position.) Any further questions, let me know.
