One turns forward, the other back

I'll be pulling the cover off my front differential hopefully today, but what do I have to look forward to? My front end is messed up, and while I was dragging the jeep, I noticed that one wheel rolled forward, the other back. Not a good thing. Any ideas what kind of mess I'm in store for?

If you have both wheels off the ground, with an open diff. when you spin one wheel the other will go the other direction. I don't know what you mean by "dragging" the Jeep.

Dragging means pulling the jeep with a chain.

I am asuming that this is on a stock axle, correct? You pulled it out or moved it with a chain and the front axle was rotating in oposite directions. Was the T-case engaged for 4wd at the time? Does the jeep currently drive, if so, any noise from the front end?

Stock axle, the transfer case was not engaged but the vacuum motor was engaged. Now that the axle is not engaged, the vehicle will move, but not too far.
