I'm not sure but try this: With your steering straight ahead, back up and then go forward slowly while pulling gently on the 4x4 selector. Also, bump it in and out of gear at times while rolling. Your drive train is under tension and the gears can't release. This is normal but gets worse if tires don't match in size or wear. Hard, dry surfaces make it worse too. Hope this helps.

either check yourself, or have a mechanic check the shifter cable..
