rear end locks up in forward but not reverse

I just finished putting gears in my rearr end. I got it all back together and it will not go forward but it will go backwards. I. Haven't put my yoke on yet because I am waiting got one would not having the yoke on cause it to do this. Everything seem to turn fine till I pit my tires back on snd set it on the ground. Any input would be great

Locks up with tires on the ground. Spin freely when it was on the jack stands

Drive backwards!

I would rather have a broke Jeep, than no Jeep at all.

I really can't understand your original post. You mean you heven't put the yoke on yet? Are you just pushing it?

Can you say "pinion depth"?

While not funny (well, maybe to some of us ) my guess is that the carrier now has some fresh gouge marks since its not meant to be part of the brake system.
