    i only broke a couple sets of spiders in the rear. but that was before i put the locker in.
    i have the torsion bars cranked all the way up , which does put the front axles
    at a good angle , but i have only had to replace them twice in about 16 months.
    but i have a lifetime warrenty on them , so it only has costed me about two hours of my time to change them.
    it all depends on how heavy your foot is. :D

    no problem i will do my best to answer your questions.
    they are great trucks. i have had mine for 5 years. my
    only issue has been the 700r4 tranny. i am not have great luck
    with them. but its my fault , cause everyone else seems ok with theirs.
    mine had a 2.8 in it and i swapped a 3.4 crate in it. i also built my own bumpers.
    she has been one tuff truck, and has yanked out a couple toyotas and a ford
    fullsize stepside also.
