I have an issue with my rear axle. I was yanking another ATV out off a mudhole when I heard a snap sound like a bolt breaking. Now, it seems like only one rear wheel is pulling. I have an 04 Rhino 660.

welcome to the broken axle club.

grab each rear axle and pull on it, you should be able to tell which end is broke.

I have a set from a 06 lil bigger and stronger if you need them. Pm an offer to see what we can work out.

yah--I snapped one on the weekend--left rear--I just bought this bike and was not impressed--anyway its got 27 swamp fox tires on it and I believe that is the issue--let me ask this question to the experts on here--if these big tires bottom on the inner fender on some whoops and I'm on the gas could that have cause this americanCV axle to snap clean just inside the inner CV--its gotta be something like this cause really I wasn't driving that hard--love these big tires but can't afford this crap

Big tires, oversize wheels, etc. will lead to failures when the rest of the vehicle hasn't been modified to accept such additions. Doesn't matter what vehicle you buy the same holds true. Modify something such as the tires/wheels and leaving the stock axles = eventual failure.
