I used to think the same thing, but I have the heaviest 37's around at 150 lbs per corner, and still on the stock rear end with an ECGS 3rd with 4.88's. Crawling is way harder on 3rds and axles than desert...at least in my experience and I have a few gnarfed R&P's hanging on the wall. I was nervous for the first 25,000 miles offroad or so. Now I just hammer down. If it grenades, I'll upgrade, but so far so good. (This speaks more towards the outstanding third setup from ECGS, it has more miles on it than the factory third!)

I'm curious about this as well. I've wheeled with a guy in a 09 and he gets away with a lot of abuse on his cv's. In fact he's never broken one. When I researched long travel it seems that you guys poping tundra CV's are extremely rare. I can't wheel without a spare CV for peace of mind but it would be great to never need it lol.
Now if someone can make cryro'd jack shafts....

It took me years to get my mid travel flexing like I wanted. I expect this will take a bit of tinkering too LT sure does smooth out a rough trail at speed though. Last night's testing was fun!

Correct the 1st gen tacoma/3rd gen 4runner have the tripod, but we dont ever break those. We all break the outer cv cage almost always or shear the shaft on non OEM CV's

Tundra has real CV joints on both ends but I think the outer joint is stronger then the standard 1st gen tacomas since no one seems to break tundra CVs on there LT rigs. George running 37" tires up claw hammer pretty much proves that since Claw is a great place to break CV's

2nd gen tacoma seems to have a built proof CV from what I've seen but I've only watched one rig skinny pedal through some hairy spots.

sorta related picture shows OEM Tundra, aftermarket tundra, and 1st gen tacoma inner joints.
