probably a stripped or broken drive shaft at the diff end.

With difflock OUT, does the rear propshaft turn?

If NO I'd suspect the transfer box.

If YES it's the back axle.

If it's the back axle it's either a half-shaft or the diff. You can remove the half shafts without even jacking a wheel up, and you'd have to remove them to change a diff anyway so may as well check 1st.

Transfer box input shaft fail?

That would give no drive at all surely?

Was there a decent sized bang or anything like that?

That vehicle will have a 2 pin rear diff which probably looks like the next stage of this one which is about 1 decent welly boot full of throttle away from a fkin big bang and much the same symptoms...
