    There's a thread about RCV on TTORA.

    The general consensus is you either break a cheap part that's easy to fix (CV) or beef up the CVs and break something much more expensive and difficult to fix (diff)

    If they're breaking simply because they're at too much of an angle, then beefing them up doesn't mean you're any more likely to crack your differential housing. I seriously doubt that could even be done without a front locker.

    Also I would consider looking at driving technique and when you feel binding you may want to back off, reverse a little, wheel in a way that may allow you not to have to turn real tight. Also realize there are times 2 wd will help you more than 4wd... just some thoughts and my 2c
