Here you can see the new stub axle mated to the factory short-side axleshaft. This inner axleshaft is the only axleshaft we reused for this project. This part is probably going to be the first part to break if we get into a bind on the trail. The nice part is that these shafts are inexpensive and easy to find at most wrecking yards. We like the idea of having a fuse in our drivetrain because it allows us to carry spare parts and all the necessary tools to fix a problem while traveling south of the border.
