With that information, there is nothing to go on.

How did you tow it? How far?
What trans and transfer case do you have?
What mode did you have them in while towing it?

Some require the transfer case to be in neutral, with the transmission in gear. Some need to have the driveshafts unhooked to be towed.

If done wrong, there will be no lubrication and bearings will burn up.
That's why it's important to know exactly how it was towed.

I'm assuming from your post.
It was flat towed.
In neutral with the transfer case in 2HI.
Driveshaft hooked up.
