Disconnect the front differential to transfer case drive shaft and try to turn the wheels. If this does not work - then there is a problem inside of the differential. Even if the c/v joints on the half shaft were bad, the wheel would still turn.
Is your differential the type with an actuator motor on it (IFS)?
BTW - What lead up to replacing the half shaft?
