    So I've read a fair amount about gusseting your spindles and just wondered how many folks here have done so. If you are among this group, why did you choose to do so and have they saved your spindles at any time? Please give stories :cool:

    A lot of the FJ guys and gals I wheel with have them.

    It's a fairly cheap form of insurance and definitely useful if you have a lot of weight and gear on your truck. Don't want to overload your suspension and bend those
