There is NOOOO way a new truck could do that because of the owners usage. That is unless you've been doing 5000rpm clutch dumps or something. And even then I'd think youd break a driveshaft or u-joint before lunching the diff.

Was it making any noise before it let loose? What where the circumstances when it let go?

no there was no noise, i just backed out of the driveway put it in first and slowly let out the clutch then boom. i have never driven it hard and it has stock tires so i dont know what is up with it.
