I would check to be sure, I read the other thread you have and I would definately make sure I could be wrong but that's the only reason I can think off for it to be grinding in neutral is that it's not completely in 4 or 2 wheel drive I would mess with the shifter to make sure it is in one or the other
If it is just making a grinding NOISE in neutral......if it is a manual.... could be throwout bearing or input shaft. Try pressing in the clutch and see it it gets worse or better. If it gets worse...bearing. If it goes away.... tranny.....

Had 75CJ5, 89YJ, 93YJ. Have 82CJ7 & 95YJ____Not one burnt yet due to lack of relays.
no throwout bearing and nothing broken, i drove it for a second yesterday and it fixed it self and it seems it was stuck in 4wd or half way between 4wd and 2wd but now this moring i bumped the 4wd shifter and its doing the same thing... i was reading around and im thinking it has somthing to do with the vaccum lines on the disco? leaking or somthing
save some time and find someone w/a vacuum tester just incase.
Other than that, how did the symptom start? If you were in 4wd you were up to something? Give us some details of when the problem started, what you were doing, terrain, etc. Sounds like something is not "all the way" engaged.
Ok ya i was at crookedfinger OHV driving on gravel covered by about a foot of snow and i wasnt doing anthing crazy just driving in 4wheel low and it was going just fine and then i got out of the snow just on gravel and put it in 4wheel high and drove unteil i hit the pavement and then put it in 2wheel drive and started driving and when i let off the gas in any gear i heard this grinding noise comming from the tranny or t-case not sure what one but then ill put the tranny in neutrual " 5 speed manual tranny " and i hear this noise that sounds like grinding and my 4wheel drive light is on but the 4wheel drive light has been on ever seince i got the jeep "6 mounths ago" but ive never had this problem before. but it is deffentley half way into 4wheel drive or not completey in 2wheel drive how ever you want to say it. but idk im stumped =(
I would look into it. Again the only time I've heard a similar problem was because it was in between 2 and 4 wheel. Not saying that's your problem but I'm saying. I'm sure some one on here can tell you how to check that vacum on There cause that I don't know but I would definately look further into making sure it's in 2 or 4 wheel cause at the moment either one is good just to be sure of what's going on.
Try putting it up on jack stands then while the linkage is removed pull it like was said before except this time while your pulling it have some one turn the wheels by hand slowly to see if that helps and you can also try before putting it up on stands and disconnecting the linkage to try and put It in two wheel while it's in first let the clutch out just a hair while moving the shifter towards two wheel but don let clutch out completely just a hair.
Does the grinding go away when you press the clutch. If so tranny is going. This happened to mine so I replaced tranny. Rebuild in hawaii is pricey. I was told it could be bearing, gears syncros. I didn't care to have it rebuild or troubleshooted since I needed the jeep up asap. Hope this helps.
Right now I have my tranny down on my '92. I completely disassembled the transfer gear shifter and found it pretty bound up. I anticipate it operating much more smoothly when I get the linkage all painted up purdy and the moving parts (a lot of plastic on plastic and metal on plastic) all lubricated with an appropriate lube. Could be your linkage?
