im in lebanon with a trip to portland about twice a month or so. i think this is what caused my problem as my clutch was acting up for quite some time beforehand.

Same thing happened to my old axle that's installed under my buddy's truck...happened to my buddy. Gear guy told me clutch drops cause centerpin movement issues which lead to the side gear breaking. And that allowed the shaft to slide-in and release the c-clip and inturn, byebye axle shaft. lol. Glad your alright.
