You're right axles should'nt snap like that............but most people
that i have noticed install larger tires than their axles are rated for
and run into problems quickly.
GM 10 bolt/dana 44 axles are rated for no larger than 35" tires,
yet i see "Billy Bigrigger" strolling down the hiway with 44" super
swampers and a 12" lift bolted up to 10 bolt axles.
If they run a spool or a locker with over 400 lbs. of preload
chances are they will be hearing Snap, Crackle and Pop.
