Default no 4wd in reverse?

Just got my ranger a month ago from the father in law. Was out in the snow (in 4WD) pulled off the highway and tried to reverse out, got basically stuck. My buddy said only the back wheels were spinning. 4WD was engaged, hubs were locked. Any idea what could be causing this? Thanks

Broken axle, hub or bad transfer case most likely.
Put in 4wd check front drive line, solid?
Then put in 2wd lock hubs and try again listen for moving loose broken parts jack one side up then other spinning tire feeling for play or clunking sounds.
