HELP! Is the tranny shot?

So my brother had been driving on the highway for close to 2 hours when he noticed some white smoke coming from his jeep. He then heard a strange grinding noise. He pulled into the far right lane then his jeep started to lose power. He relized he wasn't going to make it to the exit so parked it on the side of the highway. He turned it off. Briefly looked under the hood didn't see anything out of place. Then he cranked the jeep which came on just fine but as soon as he puts it into drive it grindes. Its an automatic with 30k on the clock mild lift running 33s and its 2006. My brother is 2 states away and I really don't want to go get him unless I have to. There could be something minor because my brother knows absolutely nothing about vehicles. But with the gringing I have shallow hopes. I know it could be anything and I have a feeling its going to be towed to a shop before the and of the day, but and one have an idea what it could be? A jeep with 30k miles that has not offroaded in years blowing the tranny seems very strange to me...

As always thanks for your help guys.

Oops just noticed I put in the JK spot instead of TJ. If someone could move this for me that would be awesome.

I'd make sure the transfer case if fully seated in 2wd.
