I have a 2012 commander with satv 4” portal gears and rhino brand axles driver rear axle keeps coming out of differential I replaced axle clips and second ride after the axle popped out again riding trails half way thru the day. My question is has anyone else had this problem ? And what should I replace another axle clip ? Switch axle companies ? Or is it possible my differential is causing ? Looking for some input before I go buying more $200 axles

I found you I canâ€t run the castle nuts or cottor keys inside the portals


What holds the outer stub in the portal ? Unless the diff is screwed up you can buy a mav xc xxc axle it’s 1/2” longer than commander axles. If it comes out diff carrier ring groove is screwed up .

There is a recessed nut that holds it in the portal that has a cover that goes on after so u don’t lose any gear oil in the portals . I’ll have to check how much room there is behind cover for washer/spacers etc. I’m wondering if that longer axle be the answer before I buy a new diff
