rhino keeps breaking axles

I have a 04 660 rhino. I installed a 2" lift kit and 28" mudlites and have broke 2 axles in the past week making a total of four in the last 4 months on the rear driver side. All of the other axles are stock and have had no problems. Could it be wheel bearings? I have heard alot about rhino brand axles, should I go back with a stock length axle? Also i cant find where to buy them Just needing some advise

this is WHY you keep breaking them, get some summer bros axel shafts and they will last ALOT longer

it has everything to do with your truck tires being on there....the torque of the engine against the effort to move that big ass tire from your 69' chevy that you decided to put on the rhino, snaps axles....if you go bigger tires or bigger engine you are going to end up with these issue's eventually...and sorry I know my spelling does not suck

his rhino is also an 04, which I think those all had axel issues,and It kinda seems like your acting like the dick and a faggot who wants another dude to suck him.

Magically delicious lmfao
I went with summer bros 300m in the rear, sting ass Axle and I have heard the 04 had problems as well who's lift could be a different set up with different overall geometry than your lift just like long travel every manufacturers is different

Where is the axel breaking?
