Sorry if this has been asked and answered before but after a little bit of wheeling, I started to drive around town and after just turning on a street something gave out and made a sound like metal on metal. I got it in the air and wiggled the rim with no play so not a bearing, but after taking the wheel off I couldn’t get the rotor to spin at all. Would that be just because of the transfer case being all time 4wd or is there a problem with my brakes?

Sounds like a problem with your brakes. Even if the full time 4wd keeps you from spinning, you will still be able to move the wheel back and forth a few degrees because of "slop" in the system.

If frozen and not moving at all, its the brakes. Try loosening the bleeder screw and see if there is pressure in the caliper. Fluid should run out, but any spurt or gush indicates frozen caliper or bad brake line.
