Bush,

I see this more and more these days, surely it's warrantied?? Maybe I missed your mods, why are you running them anyway?? Lift?? They have a problem with the heat-treating process, which is obivous by the brittleness of your break.
I've heard they are made in China, although Gorrilla claims they are not.

my rhino is stock other than grizzly cdi and 27inch xtrs. i got the gorilla axles after i broke 3 stock axles in a year. i have had the gorilla axles for over two years so no warranty!! about 3 months after i got the gorilla axles the rear diff mounts broke and i busted a boot on the axle and when i went to knock the axle out of the cv joint the way gorilla advised me to the end broke off just like in the pics i posted and gorilla would not warranty it!! they sad i done something wrong :evil: !! so i just stuck the axle back in the cv joint and it has worked untill now. dont know if that had anything to do with it breaking or not!!! i ordered a axle shaft from gorilla for 80bucks but after shipping and them adding the clips that hold the cv in the diff that i didt need it was 125$$

Jumping and holding it WFO is one way to break them. I do think stock are tougher from what I have seen and heard.

Man you should have asked around, I never break axels , just cvs. I probably have the one you need for shipping only.

yellow, did you get an all new axle with cv's or did you just change the axle bar??
if you just changed the bar did you have any trouble getting the broke axle out of the cv joint.

sorry bush. no, i did not have any problems removing the bar from the cv. I placed the bar in a vice and took a large ball-ping and gave the cv a quick hit. the cv came right off with no problems. the c-lip even stayed on the axle.
