Default Transfer Case or Transmission??

My '97 Ram 1500 Sport 4x4 failed me! Driving at slightly above the posted limit downhill on I-40 from the mountains into Albuquerque, I heard a low gggzzzzzzzzz kinda sound barely audible above my exhaust and my tires and my drive just slipped away from me. Neutral in every position on my shifter. I coasted over a mile, again downhill from about 80 mph, before i stopped the truck. When i tried to put it in park with it running there was a grinding noise and I had to turn it off to select park. Seems like that indicates the output of the trans was still turning, but the transfer case wasn't fulfilling it's obligation (broken chain?). Any opinions or ideas? Thanks.
