Default any fix to the front skid axle breaking?

i have a 2014 xf 9000 137 and have broke the front skid axle twice, is there a fix for this? i dont feel it bottoming out either, front sock looks good.will the f1100 rr shaft and bolts be enough to fix this issue?

https://www.barnofparts.com/upper-cross-shaft-saver
https://www.barnofparts.com/front-tunnel-saver

These two items are relatively in-expensive and are far stronger then the RR/Race sled parts will ever be.
Barn of parts also has a slew of other parts to re-enforce the procross chassis.
