Front Hub Assembly Stuck Locked In

Recently I put my truck into 4x4 using my push button ESOF system. And it went in fine, however, when I went to take it out of 4x4 it stayed locked in. Now I have a couple of questions. The first one being; is it ok to run em locked in, if you plan on replacing anyway, or will it hurt something else, like the freaking $430 wheel bearing/hub assembly? I'm already hearing a grinding and popping noise when I'm going slow, and turning,im also getting the nice 4x4 on dry pavement hop (but that's obviously going to happen). So my second question I guess, is do you think that that grinding is in my hub assembly or if its just my auto lock hubs? What all do I need to start putting on the parts list? Any help would be helpful. Thanks in advance guys.

Try turning the hubs manually from auto to lock at least three times, should unlock for you unless something is wrong in the hub. You can drive around with the hubs locked in without damaging anything, it just puts wear and tear on the front axel as it is spinning all the time. But if you are jumping on dry pavement, it sounds like your transfer case is still engauged as well as your hubs, which is something you should not be driving around on dry pavement with.
