Why shouldn't you drive in 4x4 on dry pavement? What damage can be done?

I would guess lots of damage. I actually hit the 4WD button on my tcase shifter yesterday on drive pavement and the truck went into 4x4.

The thing started to bind up after about 30 feet, which is what tipped me off. Getting it OUT of 4x4 was a pain in the ass because of that. When it finally DID come out, there was a LOUD thud/bang from the tcase. That kind of thud/bang = you just barely avoided destroying something for good.

When I got home, I put it in 4x4 again (on my loose gravel driveway) and luckily it engaged/disengaged just fine, so it's OK. But man, what a heart-stopper.
