I'm sold on RCV's but not trusses yet. I was being talked into doing it while getting regeared to save on labor, but haven't seen many bent or broken housings.axle shafts break. that is part of their function. no amount of trusses will save your shafts. trussing is really only necessary if you are going to hard core rock crawl often. with the FAD my guess is ill buy another axle before i bother trussing this one. the tube has too many pieces already. just my $.02
I already bounced through the desert too.
