PL XR+ Axle safety alert


One more item to keep a close eye on. Had a local guy today doing a turn and the lug separated from the rear axle. Got it tig'd back on now but it could have been bad.

(this is just with the fitting stuck back in for the picture)

(not sure where all that grease came from)


Was surprised it was a loose fit and not a press fit or close tolerance. So with it as it is; all the weight, load, shock is on the "weld" and not the structure in the case of if it was a closer fit.
