    Underside of the axle is smoother - fewer protrusions to get caught when dragging axle over rocks.

    Of course, for a 1st gen, you will have to figure out a way to mount the shocks.

    Of course, for you to even worry about the U-bolts, the rest of the truck should be well armored to drag over rocks first (i.e. full skids front to rear).

    I only got mine because I wanted Timbren bumpstops, so I got the whole All-Pro kit.
