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.

Just because you can doesn't mean you should.
