stray dog is on a distinguished road
Default trans grenaded or/and rear axle imploded

ok, so i was driving home the other day. i was accelerating mildy in the 65-70mph range when i hear a loud knock and a violent shudder (like i ran over a brick or something) so i start to slow down/get over when it happens again, then i lose all motor to rear wheel power in the break down lane i discover that the transmission will seemingly shift but with no reaction(like when you put it in drive and it nudges forward a 1/2") and it will not transfer the horses to the rear.. after being towed home by my friend.. i look under the skirt and see a very new very large dent in the diff cover about a 1 1/2" long,centered at the bottem,and she's leaking diff fluid now, i haven't started tearing into it yet ,but i figured it's ethier the tranns finaly died (damn you chrysler!!! you finally got me!!!) or the rear axle imploded...or both... this happen to anyone else or something similar?
