    I was just looking through the forum and noticed there really isn't much on how durable these trucks really are off road. So I thought it'd be cool to start a thread on what all everyones broke while four wheeling to show just how durable these trucks are :)

    hopefully its as simple as the front wheels, but ive seen trucks with damanged pins on the leafs, and the rear axle start to slide back.

    Understatement of the day.

    Other than bumps and scrapes, I don't remember actually ever breaking a mechanical part. Just wore some out super fast ;)

    lol shoulda known my name would pop up in a thread like this. :D
    And a n00b behind the wheel with a happy throttle foot! Was literally my first time in 4wd on a trail...

    PS I've actually snapped 2 OEM CVs since that trip... but that was on 37s and 1 was completely driver error...

    Tacos are tough little trucks!!
