The only time i've experienced this is when i didn't fully shift the TC handle back. Are you sure the handle cant go back farther in anyway? IS your transmission in nuetral when you do this?

If your handle is going all the way back when you shift, make sure that the linkage is working correctly. I had mine come out of the pivot point on the t-case before (on the ZJ) and had to replace a bushing to keep the linkage in place. It could also need to be adjusted.

When it grinds, does it say in one place and not move?

if you get caught in neutral you pretty much have to shut the motor off to get it back into range. try locking it into 4low then starting back up and going.

Shift fork is probably wore and won't let it engage all the way and causing the gear teeth become striipped to. Even when able to coax it into gear, a bad fork will allow it to jump out of gear again. Chain will start to stretch too as things warm up and the gear takes hold abrubtly and grabs the chain.

I would get under the Jeep and disconnect the shifter from the t-case. I would then manually shift it into low range while the vehicle is off and in park. Then get in and see if it will stay in and operate properly in low. If it does, you have a problem with the linkage somewhere. If it still has problems, your problem is internal in the t-case.
