Sounds like you have a universal joint issue.(the joints that attach the drive shaft at the transmission and the rear axle.) You are right in not driving it as the drive shaft could fall out.However if this noise just started to occur you should be able to drive it a short distance to a mechanic and save the tow cost. I personally have driven (although carefully) for several weeks before i was able to change a universal joint. There are also some other possibilities of things it could be so I would suggest you take it to a trusted pro to have it diagnosed.
hope this helps!

Had rev. on bronco 2 1984 c5 yesterday not today chris

Sounds like, unfortunately, that your reverse gear went out. The only way to get it fixed is to take it to a transmission speciality repair shop to have the gear replaced. Also a very expensive job, could be as much as $1000 to $1500.
