    This isn't going to be cheap, but build everything to be able to handle more abuce then you'll ever put it through. Thats my plans. Well, if I can ever afford to that is.

    <font color="green"> Wow, that's the longest run-on sentence I've seen in awhile! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    As for the question - not much to say other than build everything right the first time and don't half-ass any repairs. When stuff breaks it's usually because it was not maintained correctly or because you're asking too much from a part that was not designed to take the stress that you're putting to it. The first step in any buildup should be to go through the entire truck with a fine tooth comb and find any weak spots that have been missed during routine maintenance and take care of those, then start on the upgrades. Build it once and build it right. Until you want to upgrade, then build it again and build it right. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif</font>
