popping out of gear? rancher 420 grinding

occbrute helped me snorkel my 07 420 rancher today, it has a 2" gorilla stage one lift in the front, snorkeled, 27x10 and 27x12 vampires. i was doing a water wheelie (in water not deep enough to need a snorkel) and had it pretty much wide open in first. all the sudden it started making this terrible grinding noise and i could feel it was no longer powering the wheels. i put it in 4x4 and proceeded more slowly and it did it again, much less violent this time because i wasnt on the gas much. i kept riding after getting out of the water and had no problems. what is goin on with my little honda?

The diff has a spring that pushes out on the prop shaft and sometimes the spring wears out. It is suppose to keep it pushed into the u-joint, but that is not always the case. Kind of a bad design if you ask me. I changed the whole assembly out (u-joint, prop shaft and spring) and it worked for awhile. Then went bad again. I would suggest taking off your lift and replacing these parts.
