Default So, trans or axle?

My reverse gear just went out this morning in my 99 2wd.

But, when I shift the trans into reverse, I do feel the gear grab, but the wheels don't turn. So, Can anyone tell me, what could this mean?

Does it mean I need a transmission, or an axle, or a new differential?

Or, a new truck?

99% sure it's the trans. Does it go into drive? What trans do you have?

Transmission. The axles and diff. have nothing to do with being able to rev. If you can go forward but not rev. then it's the trans. It might feel like it grabs, but the clutches might be slipping to much to make it move.

Don't know, the one it came with? I don't know these details.

How might I find out, then?

Yes, though, drive works fine.

So it's an auto. That's what I was getting at. Manual or Automatic.

Sounds like the trans for sure.
