OK, so ive been doing a lot of offroading with my 00 pathy and wanteded to try 4low, so i pulled down to 4x4 (while the engine is running) then put the trans in neutral, put the transfer in neutral then i tried to put the transfer in 4 low and it made a grinding noise, its never seen dirt or 4 low and it was 210k miles on it. the only way i can get it in 4 low is if i shut the car of and put it in than re start it...any advice? is this normal ?

I am assuming you know the whole pushing down on the transfer case shifter in order to get to 4lo...you have to do it in a swift motion, forceful but accurate, if you dont it will grind...it takes some practice...

so with the trans in neutral : pull to 4hi, push knob and pull to N then pull down to 4lo with some force and it should be in ? ... in otherwords its possible to shift with the engine running?

It IS possible, his truck was off so he could show each transition...what you have to do (and I forgot to mention) is when it is in 4Hi push down and pull back firmly all the way into 4lo...if you go into N first you will get grinding...go out and practice it with the truck off then try it with it on, it takes some getting used to as to how much force to apply and all of that but youll get the hang of it
