Today i was going around 30mpg or faster up the railroad tracks and they have all them little bumps that are like whoops. I was going along and befor i knew the grizzly did move no more in gear. I called my friend and he came down with his brothers trailblazer and pulled me about 2mile sdown the tracks into tow so i could call my dad to come pick me and the grizzly up. I had him pull me because in gear in 4x4 meaning front wheel drive the rear shaft would move up and down and i didn't want to snap were it bolts on at.

Now for the questions. Does gorilla or any other place make a rear drive axle? If so whats the place do they have a website and everything with the price and contact info? How hard is this to change? Did anyone ever have this problem befor? You guys think i can get this welded? Whats it made out of?

Here's the pics of the part in case anyone doesn't know what i am talking about.

No i don't beat my grizzly to death. I just trail ride it go in the mud and use it to get me around. I guess going fast over bumps did a numbe ron it i don't even jump the thing. I thing maybe it could be from riding 3 people on it or riding my friend pat who weights 200pounds could have weaken that part of the frame. I do ride 2 people on it alot! I also use it for some work when it needs done. Like plowing,towing trees,pulling loads of gravel and wood.

I love mine its like a tank it goes alot better than lots of other quads in the mud and snow. HEck in the ruts i was making it thhrought in 2wd were SRA quads were getting stuck in 4x4. Only thinks i replaced was front and rear bearings rear bushings and brakes. Which are all from going in the mud the bushings are probley more from doing donuts and powerslides than the mud. It's been a great quad never lets me down. The biggest problem was the drive axle and frame which i think was my fault not the quads. The quad has 3,300miles on it and nothign to major has happened.

It might hold up, but I doubt it will be as strong as a new axle would be. The axle takes quite a bit of stress. It looks like you welded it pretty good though :lol:
