Yikes, that's a nasty failure. Probably a combination of a poor factory heat-treat and fatigue - definitely not a common failure. NP249 output shaft won't work in an NP242, if you were already having chain issues it's probably time to hunt down a replacement transfer case.

1994 5.9L ZJ, retrofitted UC package, NP242 swap, 17" JK Moabs with 32" BFG MT KM's.

Looks like your rear end literally "crapped itself".
