Has anyone broke a driveshaft yet? I managed to break mine while riding average terrain. It does seem odd to me that the driveshaft would break before the axles.

Nothing damaged at all. Just the shaft. Clean break just in front of the spline going into the rear drive.

That's never good...maybe some bad heat treatment that day of production?

So I was looking for aftermarket one and can’t find any I’ve been threw 3 in past 4 months tired of them breaking so going to build one way stronger bc these things get expensive when you buy that many

So you broke 3 of them already, have they all broke in the same spot? Curious what you come up with. Are you doing it yourself? Please follow up so we can all learn.

Sure wish you would give us more info. Like was it stock wheels and tires, or bigger aftermarket stuff? And was it in low or high, and 4 wheel drive and diff lock or not, and what type of terrain? Seems if you broke 3 in 4 months you have been more than trail riding. What else have you broke on your krx? And a picture of the 3 broken drive shafts lined up would help give your statement some credibility. Just like to know more about this is all.
