The diff issue is very common in snowy areas. People who get stuck spin the crap out of one wheel until the spider gears blow to pieces.
Older Chrysler FWD cars used to spit the gears through the case. VWs up to mid 90s (5 spd manual) would shear the pin holding the spider pinion shaft, and it would slide out and break the trans case or machine the case until all the fluid leaked out.
