Sounds like the perfect formula to break a front ring and pinion.

The 80's series have a highpinion front diff, good for clearance, bad for reverse stress.

Many members have broken the front ring and pinion by pulling out stuck vhehicles in reverse.

I would try draining the front diff first and see if you get any metal bits.
When asking for advice on a vehicle, it's always helpful to know what vehicle, what year, what country?
