Have any of you seen a heavy duty 24 spline axle break (such as GBR) on a D 90. First hand without a doubt?

Don't they come with a 5 year guarantee or am I thinking of the wrong ones?
Just wondering how tough they are, could make a difference when deciding on a locker.

well, now if we start talking money-no-object, then forget anything landrover (barring 101 CVs), and go with Dynatrac ProRock 60s or EXAXT custom Mog axles...

just for kicks, check out the Mog axles...

Troy that's some heavy meat, but man you need to see a doctor, your fists are as big as your head.

I can appreciate what Troy (my business partner) says about ARBs but it is my opinion that the Detroit is fine for the back and the ARB is made for the front... Really I like to build axles big enough for spools out back buuuut...
My Wifes Disco has a TT up front and a Detroit in the rear(sals that is) it works perfectly in the ice and snow and very well in the rocks... As for the Anchor theory I can attest (?) that this is true having wheeled in Snow all my life... Side hills are scary sometimes.. But that's what that pedel on the right is for well and the winch in the back.
Karen's Disco surprized the wee out of me in the snow last year with the detroit and the TT it was flawless even on sidehills... With the center diff unlocked it went everywhere...

I have replaced and repaired a good many broken ARB's in the rear but only rarely up front...
Put in good axles and you will be good with either set up..
But in the end really it depends a lot on what you are going to do with the truck.. and your driving style..
Unless you have a D60 up front no Detroits there please..

Yes Troy needs to see a Doctor but only because of his dreams...
Always.... Mogs Buggies and Fancy 60's
I think he had these things tattooed inside his eyelids...
Gotta make this one come true...

My thoughts exactly, I run 35" MTRs and NO lockers, with a little creativeness you can fallow the 33" locked guys without a hitch.

HAHA... I was not going to say anything myself but.... I seem to remember my locked 235 pizza cutters smoking those unlocked 35"s on Rabbit and then the 285s on Lisa's made it up the same spot with just a rear locker.

No one else took the same line I did in RI.

For those not a member of BSROA here is a pic.
And Yes I made it with some good spotting and a little wheel spin.

YES Mike. I did get my newsletter a few days ago (same day the new Unstuck DVD came in fact).

I wasn't going to say anything because I know how much you love the spotlight...

I was too busy grilling my lunch while you, Peter and Jimmy were playing around


But we'll be happy to use Ken's rickety winch line, kinked and burred, to pull you up that hill in Paragon again.

You still get the award for throwing the most mud.

ROTFLMAO! Lets not forget that you got to test out your new winch cable on that same spot. I think I could have made it if I could have got into third, but the faces that the 5 of you (yes even Zach) were making were not making me feel to comfortable.


David Buchberger it is snowing right now!

Agreed. My rear locker wasn't working due to an installation malfunction...

I've been wondering for a while now about fitting true tracks front and rear?
What are everyone's thoughts on that option?
