Question Twisted gorilla in half! Replacements?

I have looked on this forum & others & have got so so many mixed opinions. (welcome to the internet.. right?)

I have an 06 660 rhino, 3" highlifter lift, 27" mudlights, Gorilla axles.

I twisted the right rear in half on a rocky trail in WV. yanked the axle out & limped it around the rest of the day & ended up breakin the front left in the same place!!

Both twisted in two, inside the boot on the diff side. Boots were intact & not leaking before the axles breaking. The CV alxes stayed & the axles just twisted in two.

Im looking for replacement options. No B.S. He said She said. I have heard good and bad about: OEM(150$), Rhino brand(200$), ADR(119$), Gorilla(375$), Ebay(119$) etc..

If you have actually ran any of these for a good while (not installed last week) let me know. I cant afford Gorillas right now.

Sorry to be long winded. Just trying to cover the bases.

Thanks in advance!!
