Dana 300: 4WD ok, 2WD just grinds

Just bought ANOTHER CJ, an 82 CJ7 6 cyl. auto. It won't move in 2WD, just makes a grinding noise, but goes in 4 just fine. Any ideas?

Broken rear output shaft maybe? In 4WD it wouldn't make any (or much)noise 'cause the front is doin' all the pulling. Just a thought.
