Well I figured it out, as it was driving me insane the last 24 hrs. I did not measure my shafts too short. I accounted for the 1.125Ē gap of the centerpin using RuffStuff Specialties tool. The Yukon grizzly locker doesnít have one and is allowing the shafts to touch and slide back and forth 1.125Ē. Which is exactly the length of the ruined splines on the Branik Motorsports 300m shafts. So had I ran a different locker this would have never happened. I ordered the 3rds after I ordered the shafts from Stan Haynes, and didnít even know to look. Branik didnít do anything wrong. I ordered shafts based on the ruff stuff tool before I ever ordered thirds. Wish Iíd caught the mistake. Jesse said no clips on the RCVs, and Iíve never ran a dual spline shaft. One with a yoke wouldnít have slid in, or a semi float flange. Thatís all Iíve ever ran and made sure to cut them to account for a pin in case I ever switched lockers.

I did the exact same thing on mine. Definitely one of those mistakes you only make once. Luckily mine came all the way out & only buggered up the very end of the splines.

FWIW, you can use that length shaft, just slip in a chunk of delrin to take up the 7/8" pin width. Then if you ever go ARB, it's a bolt in process.

Talked to one guy who welded a 1/2" drive socket to the end of one shaft for a campground fix to the same problem I couldn't bring myself to weld on a 2 day old set of RCV's

Sean emailed me and RCV is sending a rebuild kit even though Iím not using their shafts, so I have partial good news. Branik is at KOH so I have to wait until Monday to order a new shaft.

Derlin is one thing that was suggested. Itís definitely not a mistake Iíll ever make again. Thatís why the big shops charge, bc they keep mistakes like this from happening. I wish I would have caught it before this and remedied it then. Live and learn, just glad for the support of vendors when itís not their fault youíre an idiot.

Hand notching sucks. I should have done this prior, but got in a rush with everything that was going on. Needed to add these, some catch cans and a lid before werock comes to town.

Only pics from this weekend, but was able to nail the comp line of Hannibal before I sold it.
