I agree with not pulling anything heavy, or creating a shock load in reverse. In my personal experience, the ring gear teeth would let go first.
I also think it would twist the shaft instead of just bending it.
So tell us exactly how much force was used pulling the bush out. The Jeep on a paved surface, 4000 rpm, slack in the strap causing a shock load to the drive line when tightened?
