I believe that reverse is operated by a brake band. So it seems to be stuck. It is operated by a piston, and the seal could have swelled and caused too much friction. But you could loosen up the adjustor so that it is disengaged, in order to get forward gears again. Perhaps you can force the piston to retract as well, once you drop the pan again.

SOURCE: truck only goes in reverse
You are going to need to either replace the tranny or rebuild it from the sound of it. The one possiblity is that you are low on fluid. If that is the case it could be causeing your problems

Out side of a replacement or rebuild your options are limited most all turbos i have had in my 4x4's reverse is the first gear to go out, you can try an additive like lucas or something like that and see, your only out the price of it, but before you do that pull the dip stick and smell the fluid if it smells burnt don't waist you money on the additive and put it tords another trans. or a rebuild.

It's either your servo, or your bands.
Either way, the tranny needs a good cheap shop repair.
I'd just get a warrantied salvage yard tranny if I were you and save a few hundred bucks.
