That happened to a friend of mine once. Only both axles came out at the same time. He watched them come out in the side mirrors and the back of the truck just dropped to the diff. Not being the sharpest tool in the shed, he put into 4wd (now only fwd) and kept driving, dragging the back.

ya i watched it come out that was interesting never felt that feeling of it going down then dragging...

the tow truck driver and police where great but being in my ER outfit with EMERGENCY ROOM all over it helped too..

That's why c-clip axles suck. Everyone's nightmare -- especially offroad.
