what do you mean it wont go over 10 mph....//are you getting enough power out of the engine...is your transfer case stuck in 4 low??.....// is your fan clutch stuck on ( can you hear it roaring making alot of noise) ...// this will rob the engine of so much power it won't shift out of first gear when it happens

ok with the engine off try spinning the rad fan if it spins then its ok if not then it needs to be replaced ...// also you say the CV ( cardin ) joint is broken the shift linkage for the transfer case is right next to it .....crawl under the truck and make sure the lever is not all the way back in 4 low have some one shift it while you looking( foot on the brake ) at it and make sure the adjuster is not broken or loose ....it could be in 4 low but the shifted is moving on the linage rod
