Help! no acceleration

The other day I was messing around in some deep snow and on the way to work the next day noticed that I had very little low end power. Acceleration takes unusually long and the rpms increase to approx 3200 before I am getting any sort of increase in speed. This is happening through every gear. I knew my shovel was packed tight with snow and ice putting pressure on my trans and tcase and holding them ridged. I cleaned all this out and the problem continued. I did find a couple drops of tcase oil in the snow that I cleaned out, it wasnt much and is not continuing to drip. The engine seems to be running perfect. I am going to change the tcase oil (I was planning to anyway before this happened) and keep a close eye out for that leak.

If anyone has any idea of what is going on here please chime in. Any thoughts and opinions will be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum!!! If you had that much snow packed up under the Jeep I would look at all areas of the drivetrain down to axles and brakes. Something is hindering the performance.
