manual 4x4 shifter hard/stuck

Haven't used the 4x4 in about a year.
Have manual hubs and shifter with a e4od
Transfer case shifter was super hard to get in 4 high and would grind if try to put in 4 low. Drove around in 4x4 high a bit and it soften everything up to normal. Works normal now (little stiffer than usual)
Is this normal or an indication of a problem?
oh, this is a 97' F250
Thank you for any info

Thanks, I did that when I got it freed up. Is that it? Just want to confirm this (symptoms) is strictly a linkage issue?

Well the grinding in 4LO wouldn't be a linkage issue (unless maybe the linkage wasn't allowing it to move fully into low range). But that's probably just from the t-case not getting exercised for waaay too long. Good idea to throw it in 4HI and 4LO once a month or so.
