Don't do this!!!! The Owners Manual states to not shift the transfer case in neutral with the engine running. You will grind your gears in the transfer case. The reason is the Jeep is stationary. This is different than engaging 4LO etc. in Neutral while rolling (around 3mph, per manual) while offroad.
I have a 2016 Unlimited Sport and towed it behind my Ram from Texas to Pensacola, FL and back last weekend.
I had a similar problem when shifting out of Tcase neutral while in Transmission neutral.
I learned to shift out of Neutral when the Jeep is still connected to the Ram. Make sure your parking brake is released (Jeep/TV) (be careful that the Jeep/TV can't roll away of course) You can then push/pull the Jeep slightly with your leg to free up the Tcase shifter.
Sometimes the gears don't mesh when you stop and above worked for me.
