I've been running these Newfields for about 5 years now and have been very pleased with them. Last week in Moab, however, while trying to pull a buddy's totally dead CJ buggy on 40's out of Pritchett, instead of breaking the Newfield, I snapped a front axle. When I got home and inspected it, I found what you see in the picture. The shaft sheared so cleanly in two it looks like someone cut it with a fricken laser beam. Problem is, it broke inside the birf. Any great ideas on how to get that thing out? I think the Newfield is still good, so I want to remove this little stub. I've searched on birfield seperation techniques and the old pound in a vise method is obviously not going to work here. The only thing I can think of is welding on a bolt to the end of the broken axle and pulling on that. Any better ideas? Anyone else experience this? Should I get a Marlin’s 4340 shaft to go with the Newfield’s or sell the Newfield’s and get a full set of Longfield’s?
