Re: stock rear axle shaft breakers
The last axle I broke was when I was in West Virginia. And it was a long side rear axle that let go for no reason. I was just slowly and easily crawling through a little rock pile, and all of a sudden, SNAP! It pissed me off, because there was NO reason for it to break there. It was just from fatigue, I guess. That axle had been in there for about 5 years, and it snapped right at the splines, a beautiful spiral fracture.
Before that, I broke both rear axles at the same time, along with both sidegears, and the ring and pinion. I somehow managed to drive another 200 highway miles with 1-wheel-drive and then fixed it. The only thing that didn't break was the EZ Locker.
