Busted Turf Saver...

I had posted on 'the other site' that only one rear wheel was spinning (a lot) upon acceleration on my '09 700XTX. As I suspected was informed it was a busted differential. Probably due to my 3 teen sons doing low jumps off dirt mounds (repeatedly) under acceleration. Suspect when it lands it shocks the drivetrain pretty hard. Something gave.
Anyway it seems the best fix is to change over to an XT spool-type rear end. Anyone else done this swap? If so, I need to know exactly what all I'll need parts wise and is this something a moderately mechanicaly inclined guy can do or should I take it to the dealer?
Also interested to see what the general consensus is on whether to do this or not? Maybe I should just ban the kids from riding it LOL!

'09 XTX 700 LE, Bimini Camo top, half windshield, Warn winch, XT spool and Gorilla axles... otherwise stock.

I believe you would like the locked rear diff better,there's a few members on here that has not had any trouble with the turf saver,then there is a lot that has.I am sure going over the jumps under throttle did it in.you might have to keep those teens off of it.LOL....Joe5091 will chime in and let you know all the parts you need,pretty much the same we talked about on the other forum.

Hmmm... I have a Mig welder and an oxy/acetylene rig and can weld (a little!). Any tips/how to's on the procedure?

There have been a couple people that have welded theirs with good luck, but no good "how to's" have been posted. D.J. (blowinsoot) was one and he would be a good resource, but I haven't seen him on the forum lately. Maybe Tusu would have some good details.

Me and my language skills i could try... Hope you understand...
Ok. First forget that mig welder. You have to use mma welding, dont know what you call it. Then... the ring gear is on 3- layers inner, middle, and outer what is the part you see. First you have to sweat those stock weldings off and skrew that part open, then you get in those middle and inner layers. There is million toothed washers between inner and middle layers. First (again ) you must weld those inner layers ribbed sleeves to middle sleeves dont forget those washers. Then put those welded inner and middle parts back in the outer layer and screw it back together. Finaly weld that outer and middle part together by those holes in both sides then sweat splash away and its ready. Dont weld it your self if you arent pro. If those weldings do not hang on, i think it could do bad damage.
Like i said... me and my language skills

Welding is an option but welding is only as good as the person doing the welding so it was not for me I wanted a permanent fix I have read where the welding did not hold so sorry I would only do the spool option. Just my 2 cents
