Grinding sound when in 4 wheel drive

My truck makes a grinding noise when in 4 wheel drive. The 4 wheel drive works but is sounds really bad. Any ideas as to what it might be? Thanks!

Check the oil in the front differential to start with.

Is it in 4wd all the way? is it a lever or a switch? if it is a lever make sure it is all the way engages otherwise the transfer is slipping in and out and will make a banging grinding sort of sound.
