It looks like the cage that holds the main gear is broken. I think you can just replace the cage or the center gear and cage. I've seen sites with individual pieces of the differential and I would try to fix It. (Unless there isn't much cost difference). The thing is you have to remove dif either way so there is not a lot of diff(erence) in the time to pull it and take a peek other than if you are trying up a lift.
