You may have bad bearings in the differential, taking out the spider gears and the front driveline should stop the overheat but your best bet is to overhaul the front differential.

Lube needs to be circulated in this front diff as it does not have hubs to disengage the axles so some of the front diff is still turning and needs lube.
