Unhappy 4x4 Making crunching noise

I never used the 4x4 but turned it on yesterday and it was making a terrible noise. I in turn slipped into a ditch because I could not get traction in the snow and ice. I was able to get pulled out but my ABS light also came on. What issues could this be. Ranger has 196K miles.

could be your hubs are bad. ABS light maybe related to ditching it. check your brakes for mud/dirt/rocks or other things that don't belong.

Thanks yeah, I researched it and I came up with Hubs as well.... Brother said Brake most likely got snow in it. I just want to be sure because I worried whether I should drive it or not.... I try to explain to guy on phone its not transmission but he wouldn't really listen...I'm taking it in tomorrow though to make sure I didn't damage anything. I'm hoping everything just got dirty.....
