Long story short broke a rear axle at the creek. Tried to limp on home (one more crossing) and hit what seemed to be quick sand off the movie Indiana Jones. While making an attempt to get it out the front went BOOM. Only had it buried to the floor board, that would equal about 22" deep.


The good is didn't bust the billet case, just everything inside it. I think the sprague cage give up first.

Dang sloboy, I thought you had the front diff issue solved. That ranger must be making too much HP. It cracked that ring gear all the way through. Wow.
So what's the plan now?

Dand bud hate to hear this. Hey, see if you can get the inners cryoed. It's really not that expnsive to get it done and well worth the money. Just a thought.... No problems with mine yet, broke about 4 axles though. I'm not impressed with these Rhinos at all except for they are VERY affordable.

I'll check with a buddy of mine and get back with ya, they have had several parts done and they have not broken anything since. One fella was goin through front diffs in his RZR900 every couple months it seemed like, He then got the inners cryoed and all is still good since then, and he gives his pure HE!!.... If I remember right it was only a few hundred bucks but WELL worth the money. For a comparison they say the stock piece is like hooking the first part of your two index fingers together and pulling them apart, after the cryo it's like hooking all eight of your fingers together and trying to pull them apart. It's basically a proccess where they freeze the parts to about 300 below zero and then heat them back up several times which they say it changes the molecular structure of the metal, the result is a super strong part that is uncomparable to a stock one.

Might just do that, no plans yet. You got somewhere I can sleep ?? I could bring my camper... Anywhere to set it up at the creek ?? LMAO I can hold enough water and fuel to dry camp for about three days.. Our group will prolly be at the local creek too, just wanting to ride somewhere different. How far is it from My house here in central Al to yours ?? What part of MS are you in ??

You can set your camper up at my camp house, It right on a black top road, got lights an water. Going to put a plug in on my pole for camper just for times like this.

Fair river runs it the pearl an we can ride from the mouth to upper bridge which is about 8 miles . A good friend of mine owns land at the mouth an that's were we parting .

I'm an electrician by trade so maybe we can fix the plug situation while I was there. LOL Got one here at my house to keep my batteries charged and ready to go all the time. My wife is in the pool bussiness so she'll have to work that weekend, so I would be flying solo if I come.

That cool, we have room in our camp. The couch in glass room makes into bed, the kids will sleep on the bunk bed. Or there is plenty of floor space. It don't matter to me which ever is easier on you. I have my boat there to checking lines an nets.
