SOURCE: 4x4 low is stuck on?
Try reversing for around 10 yards, then deselect 4WD.
Doing a few snake turns on soft ground may help too if it has wound up the transmission.
If this does not work, it may be a stuck solenoid.

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.
