Seems the Shaft spat out due to Wind-up. I was driving smooth, hard surface (mostly dirt) just cruising in L4 cause she hates High range on stuff like this. I had the new Bighorns on at 20psi. All this adds up to way too much grip and she wound herself up like a pretzel.

Lokka is functioning fine. Running in 2WD with Hubs Locked to make Lokka run in a bit (I get the TIC TIC TIC when I turn corners) 4WD Systems are happy with the Diff Clearances and the fact that it unlocks.

In case you missed by latest vid on the repair here it is

WOW - Very Strange.
Were these new CV's from after you shock loaded up the front when you did the transfer case? May have been a hairline crack in the CV that finally let go?

This was a Repco CV. Have since discovered there is no retainer in Repco CV.

And in latest news - yesterday I broke another Tie Rod. Hard sandy rutted hill both diff locks. bang. Lucky I carried a spare. This is not fun any more.
