I was driving 65 MPH on the highway and my drive shaft broke. I attached a pic of where the drive shaft broke off at. Can anyone tell me by looking at this if it broke off at the transmission or if it broke off at the transfer case or some other part.

Is this my transmission or is it a transfer case...or something else?transmission transfer case dr

That is the transmission. There is a rear section of the transmission case so you could replace just that without having to get an entirely new transmission.

Thank you so much for answering - I have been trying to figure this out for days.

I can't tell you how much I appreciate your help!
The pic you sent was very helpful too..have never seen what the whole trans looks like before. .

very easy repair. 8 or 10 14mm bolts and that tail shaft housing comes off. Its actually easier to do than a timing belt, or a tuneup

So the U-joint failed and it tore apart the tail section of the trans?
What are the chances there is not further damage?

Check the output splines for damage from that flailing u-joint cross. It also looks like a mounting bracket (for the exhaust?) below the crossmember took a beating.
