BIG Front end problem !!

Need a little input on this one gang ...
Was in the canyon helping on the clean-up when I started getting a noise from the front like sliding the skidplate over rocks
Thought the front brake pads were hanging up >....

Then I looked at the front drivers side wheel and saw this .........
When I first saw it , Just a little bit out . Buy the time I got to trailor it was WAY out ...



The ball joints seem to be O K
I'm thinking ,, if I'm lucky maybe the axle nut
Or Bearings ,,, C V joint ?????

Anybody ??????????????

looks like the nut came off the axle. the caliper is probably holding the tire on. do the brakes feel really mushy?

futsa!

Hey Ya . Now that you mention it the peddal was going to the floor
I didn't think of it then .I was too worried about making it back the whole 2 miles back to the trailer..

If it is the axle nut ..Would the rotor O K????

I'm going to tear into it this morning , Now that the rain has stopped . I can work in the garage with the door open .................

im sure its just the axle nut. when the nut comes off the rotor twists, and pushes the piston on the caliper back in. brakes will feel mushy.

futsa!

Don't feel bad, when I first got my rhino I took it out and my fuckin wheel fall off. I think the guy I got it from was poss. a lil bitter about getting rid of it. The worst part was we were like 30 miles from where we were camped with very limited tools. We found a tree stump for a jack stand a rock for a hammer, lol wow that was sure an eye opener.
