Angry Front CV problem Need Help

Im new to the site and so far I have been very impressed with all the great info.

Here is the story. I pulled the rhino of the trailor late Wednesday night in Glamis and took it for a little ride in to Olds. I engaged 4x4 to climb olds but wasnt getting any where. My brother noticed the front wasnr engaged. We parked at the bottom of the hill to see the driver side CV pulled partially out of the differential.

I didnt take any hard or even moderate hits during the ride out. What would cause this to happen?

New Kit??? Is so I would roll with the axle too short....If its not maybe you didnt get the axle set good??? I have never seen a front axle come out but I sure its possible. Re install and run it

DCE (direct concept engineering) +6 w/ summers bros axles.

It was installed by a shop and this is the 2nd time running it. I just wanted to get some opinions before calling them just to hear Im too hard on my stuff.

Its an 08 and I heard the 08 use different axles than the 07 and earlier.Could putting the wrong year axle in do this? Assuming they are different.

Your axles are at their longest point when they are flat. So if the axle is a hair short it will pull out. I'm not sure what the difference in between the 07-08

SO most likely it was improperly installed? I know the shop owner is going to try and blame it on me, so I need some ammo to fire back with.

maybe it wasn't installed all the way when they did it.
there is a clip that holds it in, but if you don't get it snapped all the way in when you install it, it can pop out.
The 08 axels are a different length then the 07's and earlier, you couldn't get them mixed up.

There is a possibiliy it wasnt seated all the way. Did you run it harder than youy did the first time? If its a short axle it wont pop out all the way immediately. At least mine didnt

I ran it harder the first time and was fine. This time it wasnt ran hard at all.

I just want to know if it was most likely my fault or the shop that installed it fault. So far its seem like it either has the wrong shaft or was improperly instralled.
