Exclamation Update on my broken axle

Went to the dealer today, the damage is about $6000 in parts! The only thing that survived was the right axle. The dif, brakes, left axle, housing, its all scrap! The dif has the other part of the axle stuck inside of it. Still waiting on ford to give a price on a whole rear assembly so it can be sent down. So if your going to break an axle do it while the warranty is still valid!

Got a call from ford this morning. After 8 days of sitting at the dealer, they finally found the price of the rear end! They ordered it but don't know how long it will take. He said all of Fords management is aware of the problem and put an emergency rush on it!

The sounds like good news. At least you will have all the latest parts and hopefully it won't happen again. It sounds like the dealer is trying hard to take care of it for you. Keep us posted on the progress.

How did this happen? Is this a known problem with raptor?

Ya this dealer in bolivar is amazing, no other word for it. I went back a few days ago and the loaner they had was like a 1976 f150 or a green town car, so they felt bad me bringing in a raptor and giving me that so they gave me a 2006 five hundred right off the lot. No papers to sign, nothing.

It broke when i was in a power slide in the sand. Ford had such a problem with my truck trying to get the parts that the guy who designed the rear end of the raptor came down to look and said that it shouldn't happen and my axle was flawed. So everything is replaced from the driveshaft back, so brakes, axles, housing, diff, wiring, everything.

wow, glad they are taking good care of you. That would be one serious bill! I wonder if this has anything to do with the "quality control" hold up on the '11s.

It sounds like Ford is taking good care of you. Glad to hear all is going well. Are you ready for another run to St. Joe Park?
