Could be many things like something wrong with the transfer case, broken drive shaft to the front dif, could be a broken front dif, broken axle to the front wheels or a broken front wheel hub. Good to start at the front wheel hubs and keep on all the way to the T-case.

If you use 4wd on asphalt or concrete road with no snow or ice on them you will damage the 4wd system.
