4WD on the road

So the jeep wouldn't start yesterday so I had it towed to an auto shop and im assuming the company put the tcase in neutral to tow. After working on it, a buddy of my uncles dropped my jeep off to me, and I noticed the t case shifter was in 4H a little bit ago when I got in. He's pretty knowledgeable about cars/trucks but I think he might have overlooked the shifter position and drove about a mile or two on pavement with it in 4wd. I haven't noticed anything different since I got it back and drove it. How bad is it for it to be driven in 4wd? Anything to watch out for?

I would say a mile or two in 4wd high on pavement should not be a problem. Unless he was driving it like a race car.

Only problem would be if he were doing tight turns. If he were hopefully he would have noticed the bucking. Probably fine.
