Could be transfer case, front differential. Hub bearing could also grind, but usually after making other noises first. Time for servicing your 4x4.

Bearing is my first thought. I had two go out in a 6 MO period in my 02 Suburban. Luckily they were easy to access and replace. Like a $60 part plus some time replacing.
