bag jack saves the day....i want one

I ended up putting on the space saver tire...and i run an oversized tire. 100 miles away..... I pulled over every 20 miles to let the driveline cool. the rear diff smoked after the first 20mi. During the drive the car would act fine, then it would start to act up and would get light vibes. then it was getting super sensitive while driving down the it wanted to kick the rear end out. soon as it did this i would pull over and upon coming to a stop the front axles grabbed and locked, it took a bit to move it when it did this.

after letting it cool down, all these issues would go away. I have new(5k old) synthetic gear oil in the rear diff and trans....i guess i will find out if i did any major damage....
