Thumbs down front differential housing grenaded

I had all four locked in climbing up over a rock, that I have drove over before, I heard a pop, and when I got out to see whatsup, the diff housing was all busted up like an egg. I got home and tore it all down, expecting to find the ring gear loose, but every thing was good and tight.
Any thoughts on what might of caused this?

Had to be the side load forces from the crawling you were doing. I have heard of the mudders breaking them...but I think they are grenading the spider gears...soory to hear about the problem. I have one out of an 06 for sale if you dont already have a line on one.

Thanks for the info, side load plus the 1000 hard miles that I have on it probably did it.
Plus I have 11"x27" all the way around.
I already order a complete diff., but whats the history on yours and how much do you want for it?
