    So im in the market for a rhino.. Went and looked at one today. Mid travel suspension.. Gorilla axles etc. The seller told my it has a torn cv boot on the rear outer. So i go and run it and its clanking pretty bad. He says its bcus the boot has leaked out all the grease. Does that sound right..or is it more of a bad cv joint issue? Thanks .

    @Riley1 had an issue with his rhino rear end, turned out to just be loose mounting bolts.

    What 3.slow said. Rhinos are notorious for having the rear diffs come loose and cracking at the mounting points. Worst case scenario, you need to buy a new rear diff. Best case scenario, tighten the bolts back up and buy a rear diff support for it.

    It will click if there is no grease in there.

    My rear diff was loose. Then started spraying grease everywhere. I bought a new (used) rear diff and the problem ended up being a loose input shaft/pinion.
    Also, these are always fully locked. No limited slip in the rear. So they bind pretty bad while turning at slow speeds on the street.

    under 4k sounds like a pretty good deal.

    Yeah. Under 4K is hard to loose on. I've changed a few boots on mine.
