Is the rear drive shaft still there?

sorry yes it's an automatic
well if your sure neither back wheel has power it's probably the viscous center differential, normally the auto works to send 90% of the power to the front wheels and 10% to the rear unless it detects slip, then the viscous diff kicks in locking the power split to 50% front 50% rear, to equalize power and cut down on slip. if you have no power being put to the rear it's either a issue with the center diff or possibly a stripped out output shaft from the transmission is the other thing.
I grabbed the driveshaft it has some play but not stripped.Where is this viscous diff everyone is talking about. is it internal or exturnal
it's a component inside the transmission, you'd have to remove and pull apart the transmission to see it.
Get yourself a test light and check every fuse in every fuse box in the vehicle before anything else.
