Hi:

A u-joint wont grind, so I feel there is another issue. Is the noise coming from the front axle or does it come from under the vehicle near the transfer case?

That is where the transfer case is located. What I feel is happening is the electric 4wd actuator is going bad and not fully engaging the 4wd. You need to remove it and check it for operation. It is a common problem.
