Tragedy

Well today I was offroading and somehow something got bent up front and my front tires are locked up. I don't know what to do but something is extremely messed up

What do you mean your front tires are "locked up". Do you mean you can't rotate the tires at all like the axle is busted up internally, or are the front tires simply pointed in towards each other in front so much you can't roll on them?

They are locked. They will not rotate in any way shape or form. I obviously shattered something inside the front axle

Does rocking them try to twist the front drive shaft a all? Can you just pull the front shaft?
