Default New member w/ busted horse - 4wd locked up

Have a 2001 2500 4X4 HD diesel, and was driving the other night through 1/2 inch of hail - stuck it in 4wd and kept driving. A few miles later, the hail had disappeared, road was still wet, and at about 63 mph going down hill heard a whine, grind, and thump. Took it out of 4wd immediately, then tried putting back in, but wouldn't engage. Pulled over and although (at a stop only) I can get it "into" both 4H and 4L, the truck won't move in either. When I press the accelerator at all, get grinds or thumps but something is obviously locked up. Truck works fine in 2H.

Gut tells me I fragged something in the transfer case, but could use some advice before I tear into things.
