When you say driveshafts are spinning you mean with the motor running you put it in gear and you can see the shafts spinning but the jeep just stands still

If that is the case your hubs in the front would have to be unlocked and at the same time your rear diff is damaged.

If your driveshafts are turning and vehicle isnt moving ...front hubs probably not locked in and you have broke an axle or something in the rear axle...sometimes you got to drive home on front wheel drive

lock in the front and let us know if she moves
