There seems to be a history of failures with the Turf Saver rear end, It was installed in the 2008,09,& 10 XTX models only. I have one in mine and have over 5,000 miles on it, and it is still going strong. I only used Arctic Cat friction modified lube in it, and change it twice a year. The downside on the unit is the price compared to the locked rear gear, 850.00 for the turf saver, and 180.00 for the locked gear. I'd be afraid to by a used one as I think you would be asking for trouble. Looked at the parts manual, the turf saver would fit your case, both are 36 teeth ring gears, you would also need to change axles to the 8,9,or 10 XTX as the splines are different. I say axles as you could change the inner CV Joint, but you can get a complete axle for 10.00 dollars more than the CV joint!
