Re: Installed the Yukon Super 88 C clip eliminator kit today on my Ford 8.8

With the wheeling and trails that I do with my friends, I have seen a number of snapped rear axles. I usually have spare axles, but I am trying to cut down on carrying so much weight and crap in my rig. You are 100% right, the caliper for the rear disk brakes will hold in the axle for a little while, but not when the trail has a day or even longer to get out of it. (We were just up on the Dusey Ershim for three days ) I got a screaming good deal on the kit, and thought I would try it out!

For #3 alone this is worthwhile, its pretty cool that is available for the 8.8. I only wish it could be used on the c8.25!

Never has it been such a reality as it was with my brothers yota at 13000 ft. Fine time to loose a shaft. (Cv and more) Anyhow I can agree and would absolutely like to have the ability to retain a broken axle shaft. Piece of mind alone would be quite nice.

Nice upgrade
