Hey there!

Hey there! My name is Mike from TN and here is our Prowler. Unfortunately as it sits on the trailer after yesterdays fiasco both rear axles broke at the outdrives. I'm sure I will find some help on here though as to replacing them!

I was following my buddy's rhino and we came to two small rock ledges. Front went up easy and I tried powering through it like he did and somehow they broke at the out drives. I think both wheels were spinning in the air and when they hit the ground they snapped.

the last thing I want to do is blow a diff. I will put stock ones back in it. I may try to find a spare set though so my weekend wont be ruined by broken axles.
