    It seems that almost everytime I go offroading my alignment gets thrown out.:mad:

    Is it simply because I am driving to fast over stuff or can something actually need replacing so that my alignment will be harder to tweak?

    Does anyone else have this happen to them?

    Is there something to replace it with a stronger one so that it will not happen as easily?

    Well last night I went 25 to 30 mph over some small rocks and so tiny little jumps that just make me do a front wheelie or a rear wheelie type of thing. I know that it isn't front the little wheelies I think it is from the small rocks and stuff.

    But I dont have A/T tires yet, those get put on this coming weak, would the tires maybe help with keeping it aligned?

    even with the gusset tabs you'll still be able to throw out your alignment when you hit the dirt. it's pretty much unavoidable if your doing the fast stuff

    and don't get too crazy either... otherwise you'll have much bigger problems to worry about than alignment. bent frame, motor mounts, steering rack, bent spindles

    I figured that it could still happen even with the tabs but as long as they will help then I will end up getting them soon. I am also going to get a new front end, I can't decide if I want a plated bumper from Relentless Fab or if I want a tube bumper from KR Fab. What do you think?

    I have the gussets they strengthen the tabs so they do not fold over, but they dont make the cams freeze and not change alignment. You could tack weld the tabs but if your springs sag or you bend something or adjust preload your alignment will be off and you will have to grind the cam free.

    Well the places around me are trails through bushes and trees

    Are tube bumpers weaker than a plated bumper in the case of an accident?
