if anything.. its would be the stock mounting points fo your uppers and lowers that would go out before the arm itself did.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

OME and Bilstein 5100's dont have that extra reinforcement so for that reason I would never purchase. Sorry if I offended any of you OME or Bilstien lovers, Im just expressing personal opinion.
Your lift was set up like crap. Thats why they broke.

I think so. A lot would have to do with tires and whether or not you have 4x4. Locker always helps.

you are too new at this whole truck thing to be on a 3 or 4 diamond trail let alone a 2. you need to know the limits of your truck and your own personal capabilities before you try to chill with the big boys. crawl before you walk.

There's definitely a lot to this statement. An experienced driver can often get a stock rig through stuff that breaks a built rig with an inexperienced driver behind the wheel.

Get out and have fun. The more you wheel, the better you'll get at it. Build a solid truck with skidplates, sliders, a locker, and decent tires and you'll be amazed at what it can get through. You'll almost always break something if you push yourself, but each time you'll be a bit smarter and more experienced for it.
