With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

That doesnt mean its not strong. You can break anything, if you dont know what your doing, or abusing somthing. I have never had the 8.4" rear break, or hear of someone out here breaking them. Not unless they were beating on it. It also depends on your defanition of "Strong". Are 35's going to put more stress on it? Absolutly. But when running 32's or so, the rear end is more than adequate for these trucks.

I doubt you are any harder than alot of the TTORA folks out here. Many are still running the stock 8" on their SAC rigs with no issues.
