My buddy runs 36" IROKS with a 10 bolt in the back of his Jeep and he broke his axleshaft at TDS this weekend. Of course no spare so we decided to try and weld it back together, hooked up our 2 batteries and I filled about 10 rods into the damn thing. After welding it back together we found that besides that the axle was no longer 100% straight the splines were kind of bad and could not get it back into the carrier so we decided that if we could just get the axle in far enough to get the C-clip on so that the axle wouldn't fall out it wouldn't matter if the splines were there or not. OK so we grind down the splines and whack it back in far enough to get the c-clip on. Here comes the crazy part, we put it back together and filled it with motor oil, disconected the rear drive shaft and drove it back to camp with only front wheel drive, after that we towed it about 120 miles back to his house I know this is not the best thing to do but we could not get another shaft on a sunday and we didn't have $500 for towtruck and everything went OK. Today we are going to do a burn out just to see how strong the welding actually is. I seriously thought that we would not even get out of the trail with the welding of the axleshaft but I guess it was stronger that I thought.
