Jeep wouldnt move in 4h after it popped out...

Ok, I'm pretty new to the forum, but I have been all over this thing trying to find out what may have happened today when I was in 4h. I was moving right along in 4h (we got 12 inches of snow) then I came to a stop at a light. When I started to move again, it seemed to pop out of 4h. I pulled the lever to put it back in 4h and the jeep wouldn't move. I was in first gear and my foot was completely off the clutch. It revved, and there weren't any weird noises...the tires just wouldn't move. I put it in to 2wd and I started moving again. When it poped out it did make some grinding noises, but i pulled it back into 4h and they stopped. Later down the road I put it back into 4h and it went just fine and everything worked. Not sure what happened. Is there anything I should check on? Im thinking my linkage may need some attention, but other than that what would make me go into "neutral" while in 1st gear?

Thanks

You could also have had a buildup of snow/ice on the skid that interfers with the shift linkage.
