Is my Rear Diffrential Bad?????

I was at work Wednesday and my Cherokee started having a vibration to it while Moving, by the time I headed home it was getting really bad. I thought it was probably a rear U-Joint. When I got home checked the Joints....,. they were good so I jacked up the rear tires off the ground put it in gear about 30 MPH and only 1 tire turns and you can hear the vibration from inside, Anyone know what it might be??

On an open diff., you would expect only one wheel to turn when up in the air.

That said, if you hear a vibration, pull the diff. cover and explore.

I don't own an XJ any longer, but I still think they are the best of all the Jeep products ever made. My XJ was my favorite vehicle in my 50+ years of driving.
So...I stick around and give advice.

If nothing else pull the diff cover and give us pics. It should be pretty obvious if something in there is the problem.
