Have you checked to see if there's any visible frozen mud around your front wheel, brakes, or knuckle? It could be a frozen brake, and putting the jeep back in 4 wheel drive and nudging it could free it, but you could also break something if you don't know what's binding.

Kinda hard to diagnose from the description so the above is just a guess.
