I was out pulling a buddy out of a mud hole. I had my F150 FX4 2008 in reverse and 4low. I started pulling him out and my truck lost reverse and engine rev went up. No reverse now.
Sounds like transmission trouble.
I know they still use the reverse band in those trannies so that is most likely what broke.
