Default Savage differential question

Had my truck out yesterday landed a jump a little hard. Now it wont move more than 1/2 foot without the wheels locking up. I did a search of the forums and from what I've read it seems one of my differentials are bad or it's the transmission. Has anyone got any input on how to tell which differential is bad ? This is the first major problem so I'm kinda lost I may not even be going in the right direction with this fix lol

Thanks
Rick

Remove the center cvds (driveshafts) and try to roll it, if if locks up, it's a diff, if not, it's the tranny.
