    Fender bulges, three busted CV boots, and pitted window. I did ask my local Toyota shop (very cool guys, replaced all CV's under warranty) about the angles of my CV's. They said they were not extreme enough to be going out that quickly and there was no signs of debri ripping them.

    So I wwent back to my tried, true, and trusted Taco. I used to have a 00' that was mildly built up too but traded it in for my FJ. That 00' Taco TRD was tough as hell. Never had any problems with it even with rough trails ebing thrown at it.
