Uhhmmm, being new...I haven't. What am I looking at and how do you avoid it?

That is a broken axle.
How to avoid it? Don't turn the wheel too far when in 4WD trying to get out of a mud hole or from a stuck posistion. Turning the wheel too far when under stress is where most of the breakage occurs. Or you could ease gently into a mud hole that 7 other rangers have driven through in February, [xx(] in the snow,[
] on Windrock mountain and pop two tires off the beads and break both front axles.[
!] That was the mud hole from you know where![}
When you break the stock, I would absolutely recommend going with Gorilla Axles as replacements. We broke three stock front axles and finally decided to go with Gorilla when the two broke in the same weekend. That was over a year ago and have been in similar situations and no breaking. [
