97 wrangler wont drive forward in 2wd but will in reverse

Was just driving down the road and Jeep started to squeal really loud then started making a loud grinding sound. Pulled over and when I tried to take off again it made the loud grinding sound and wouldn't move.

Then I put it into reverse and it would move. Then put it in 4lo and it would move forward and same with 4hi. Any suggestions on what could be the cause of this?

Sounds like it has something to do with the chain in your transfercase.... it might have come loose or something, it sounds like it is time to take it apart for some exploratory sugery to see what has come loose...

This is what I am talking about it is the drive chain in the transfercase.

But I have been thinking if chain was off 4wd would not work this one has got me thinking and digging through some old boxes of parts trying to fing a main shaft you have a factory transfercase or sye installed???
