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

    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.
