1. Did you just call me DRM? :bitch slap:JamisonWorkshop said:DRM when are you going to get that rear disk right up done.
From that post it seemed you could carry a spare rear shaft and it work on both sides which I think would be an added benefit to rear disks. With the backing plate cut off to the 4 bolt retainer it would be an easy swap.
There is only one way to find out if the rear will last though, got to put the big meats on.
I should call Marlin, I broke the right rear a couple of summers ago. I suspect it was tired I guess, I broke it on a loose gravel hill, nothing really difficult or extreme, just a trail we happened to go camping on. The shaft broke just past the bearing and the tire got wedged up under the wheelwell.woody99 said:Your gears are going to break before the rear axles. I asked Marlin about this a few years back and he said he had only heard of 2 people every breaking rear axles.
