Not much information...
The emergency drive is engaged.
Mismatched gears between the front and rear diff.

You can try to find a mile marker part time kit. They have been discontinued, but a used unit would still work.
Swap in a D18 t case from an early CJ. You will have to buy an adapter. It can get rather expensive.

You need to figure out where it is locked up. Transfer case or axle. Will it roll with the transfer cas in Neutral?

Do you have a locker, LSD, or an open differential?

Jack up the front and remove the front drive shaft. Will the wheels turn? Are the brakes seized? Pull the differential cover and look for damage.

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.
