'07 Rhino 660 build question

Hey guys I have a '07 rhino 660.   I only have the money to buy 2 after market axles right now.  Would they be better off on the front or rear?  Which sees the most breakage?  I have a 2' HL lift and everything else is factory.  I am think of 28x9.50 outlaws or 29.5x9.50 Outlaws.  Will adding a clutch kit put too much torque to the axles and make them easier to break? Should I just buy a heavy duty belt?  I mainly use my rhino to work and hunt.  But want extra ground clearance and traction bc I do see some mud from time to time.  Are there any other weak links beside the axles and clutch?  I appreciate all input.

    From my experience the fronts are weaker when the front end starts jumping and banging around.

    Clutch and belt won’t hurt as long as be easy with your right foot!

    Weak links are always going to be axles and tie rod ends. Always have good ball joints and wheel bearings. After that it’s belts and diffs
