Hi, My name is Jay

Your transmission most likely broke the internal reverse band on the main clutch forward drum when you got stuck. You can have your transmission overhauled or put in a used transmission. It may be less to replace with a used one but they are used and you do not know what shape it will be in or if it has problems until it is installed.
