Gorrila Axels vs. Rhino Axels

Im not sure if there has already been a thread written about this, i didnt see one so ill go ahead and ask? Im looking into getting a new set of aftermarket axels, so my question is would I be happy with Rhino axels or should I just bite the bullet and go with Gorrila axels? Is there really that big of a difference between them besides the price (Gorrila-$1500.00/ Rhino-$800.00) Does anyone run Rhino axels and if so how satisfied are you with them?

Rhino all the way, spend the rest on some other mods. Most people on this site will tell you the same, and not only because there a sponsor. They really are as good or better the gorrilas.

Rhino FTW! I love mine, they are working great for me. Got some miles on em now, and they are holding up real well... 31's and gear reduction on 2" rdc and hl springs. I was doing some pretty good wheelies the other day in the nasty...all held up great

Gorilla=JUNK!! Big name, quality sucks, and rhino axles are flat out a better axle. I will NEVER buy another gorilla axle as long as I live.

Yes, I have had both. Gorilla cages are weak, small and do not last. The articulation is very tight making the axles pop out of the diffs.
I will support, defend and continue to buy rhino axles for every bike or SxS I ever own. For a bunch less money the quality surpasses anything the engineers at gorilla can dream of.
This is based on my past experience...not a guess or thought I have!!

Ya thats what i figured. I looked at the specs and it seems like their made from the same material (4340 chromoly steel), i just couldnt figure out why the price difference.

Anyone try the Wild Boar axles? They suppose to be made of chromoly and have 1 year warranty as well? Also, I hear a lot of people say that the stock axle is the best axle to run.. Any truth to that? I too want to get another set of axles so I have trail spares.
