Default rear diff blew up..need thoughts

Click the image to open in full size.
this happened after doing a small burnout that had some wheel hop in it . then after stopping will not move in any gear it just acts like its in neutral, also the trans feels like its shifting normally. the wheels both spin the same direction when rotated in the air im looking for opinions on what exactly broke besides the diff carrier to cause the tt and the diff to not connect

Broken trans tail shaft or differential short axle.... really doesn't matter.

Once you pull the differential out, will tell if it's either of the two.

You really are a prime candidate for a differential/trans brace to help prevent the trans or differential cases from cracking/breaking.
