sorry for your loss....really don't know how to help you...we could find a mechanic for you...you could disassemble what you can in your driveway and try to replace the broken gears...inspect housings for cracking~ you may take the trouble to replace the gears only to find that you have a cracked housing...stranger things can happen to your truck~

Most likely your transfer case needs replaced or rebuilt, driving it will just cause further damage. I hope yours is not an AWD unit.
