ONLY GOT FRONT WHEEL DRIVE

I WAS RECENTLY OFFROADING IN THE WOODS NEAR MY HOUSE AND I GOT MY 83 K5 BLAZER IN A PRETTY GOOD FLEX UP ON A ROCK. I PUT THE TRUCK IN REVERSE AND THE REAR TIRE BEGAN TO SPIN SO I GIT OUT LOCKED MY HUBS AND BACKED OF IT. WHEN I GOT OF IT I TOOK MY TRUCK OUT OF 4WHEEL DRIVE TO DRIVE AWAY AND IT SEEMED LIKE ALL I HAD WAS NEUTRAL. THE TRANSFER CASE WAS IN 2WHEEL DRIVE NOT NEUTRAL SO I THEN PUT IT IN 4WHEEL AND IT MOVED. I DROVE IT HOME WITH ONLY FRONT WHEEL DRIVE. I HAVEN'T HAD A CHANCE TO REALLY LOOK AT IT BUT I WAS JUST TRYING TO SEE IF THIS HAS HAPPENED TO ANYONE. THE T CASE ISN'T LEAKING, THE TRANNY ISN'T LEAKING, AND THE DRIVE SHAFT IS STILL ATTACH. I WAS THINKING EITHER A STRIPPED YOKE, OR A BENT LINKAGE SOMETHING ALONG THOSE LINES. IF SOMEONE COULD TELL ME WHERE TO START I WOULD APPRECIATE IT THANKS JIMBO [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]
