So if you bent a tie rod dont lock it the front axle, and stand down on the throttle in low.

The tie rod was bent from hitting a stump early in the day no big deal.. but i was in the mud stuck and i locked the front end and had the wheel crack all the way too the left and the tie rod went from bent, too folded in half and the wheel turned about 70 degrees the the arm and grenaded the CV..

277.00 for the axle, factory direct. it wont even ship for a week..... GAY

Sorry to hear .. I think ill make some heavy duty tie rods

What you really need to make is a RADAR collision avoidance system. These guys keep hitting stuff and wondering why things break.

LOL

when you go to swap that axle out, be sure you read the directions inside the box that tell you how to remove the axle. the wildcat axles do not remove like a normal axle. read the instrucions first or you may be buying another axle to replace the one you beat on and tore up for no reason.
