I haven't opened it up yet, currently running G2 5.13's with an aussie locker. Cheaped out on the locker because I knew I would break at some point, but we'll see how everything looks once the RCV's arrive and it's all opened up. The splines on the end of the axle were just slightly twisted when I pulled the shaft out, so I don't know if the teeth on the ring bent with it or stayed straight causing it. If I need a new set so be it, at least now I'll feel more comfortable getting a better locker.
What was weird about the whole thing, my bumper actually contributed to the break ... the passenger wheel was so far forward (RK long arm) that it was hitting the bumper. Nothing is going to bend those fab fours, so it was a case of irresistible force meeting immovable object with the axles being the weak point.
