Any extra load due to binding was on the transfer case. If you were able to pull out of 4Hi and get it back into 2Hi without much trouble you're fine and didn't even stress the chain much at all. When they get all bound up the are tough to get out of gear. I'm assuming you were able to get it out of 4hi since your post didn't end with "and I couldn't get it back into 2hi"

You're fine. Definitely a not a habit you want to get into, but you're good.

I see that.

But I doubt I’d want to be driving on slick surfaces at 42 MPH! :CWL:
Agreed. Common sense should rule in that case but I make no assumptions. You'd be surprised how many people lack that and have argued with me to use the 4hi justification to exceed what normal people would consider safe.
