I have been a 4x4 owner all my life due to living in Maine most of it. I can say I have never put my vehicle in 4x4 on the pavement cause I know it is a no no.
This is why I firmly believe dealerships should make their sales people earn their money a little more by having the owners go through a small training session on the 4x4 with them or the service dept to make sure new owners don't do this exact thing. This could have been avoided if that were the case. I believe it is the responsibility of both the owner and dealership, not just 1 party.
That being said, i would go back to your dealership if you have any noise in the front differential period! Simply because when you need it, it may let you down in that critical moment. Just my 2 cents. You can omit the part where you intentionally put it in 4x4 low on the pavement, but that's up to you. My personal opinion is be honest so they can correctly diagnose it. Good luck friend.
