Front diff. failure at 20,000 miles

I took my truck in this morning to have the amplifier replaced. The roads were iced up, so I put it in 4-wheel drive. It engaged fine but it sounded like I had an extra muffler up front and ther was quite a bit of vibration that would come and go depending on how much gas I gave it. More gas=more noise and vibration. The mechanic looked into it and said there was a huge amount of backlash in the front diff. I've read about alot of rear diff. failures but not so much about the front. I've only engaged 4 wheel drive maybe 6 times, driven maybe 200 miles with it engaged. Any other Titans out there with this problem? What year is your truck and how many miles before the failure?

Sorry to hear that Charged, the good news is that it's under warranty. I used the search engine and there are several threads discussing Front Diff failures. Here are a few to start with.
I haven't heard of that many ...

I know not to Don't pull someone out of the ditch backwards with the way our gears are.

I always take my foot off the gas before hitting 4*4 mode.
