Please help! Rear shaft problem

So we finally got some rain in Centex (Waco) and the girl and I went muddin/playin. Just about to go home and rear shaft shiat on us . It seems the CV at rear of shaft may have stripped? Shaft turns but rear end pinion isn't?? Haven't gotten under it to disassemble as it'd pouring still and figure I need new part or used shaft first anyways. I've done searches but found little on repairing this , only replacing with a u joint setup aftermarket.
It's an 08' JK 4 door 6-speed.
Thanks for any advice guys

We have seen them come in like that. The rzeppa joint just breaks to pieces on the inside. The shaft looks fine by eye, but the guts are gone. Only option is to replace it.

If I can't get ahold of this guy I may have to do that. JC in plugervulle has one but apparently I can't sent PMs yet so cannot reply my number.
