    DefaultBroken Axles and bent tie rod

    So i recently did an upgrade to my 2013 Commander. I added the 2" highlifter lift kit with 30" Blackwater on M12 rims. I did not travel more than 125 km ( 78 miles for my american counterparts) before one axle complete came apart at the CV while bending the tie rod while the other axle is not broke, it is in bad shape. Did not think the new set up would be so hard on the axles. I am thinking of getting the Highlifter DHT axles hoping it will solve the issue. Anyone have this happen to them so soon after an upgrade? By adding the new tires and lift, do I require longer axles or will the HD axles suffice? What about aftermarked heavy duty tie rods, any suggestions?

    Cool that you joined. Also join The Maverick Addiction and explain this as I'm sure many of them lifted Commanders to mud run before the Mav was introduced
