If the u joint yokes are snapping it is usually because you are popping the caps off of the U joint and the joint is breaking the yoke rings. Do you play in mud and water often?

Buy top quality u joints, install them yourself and tack weld the caps into place. then wash your truck totally after each time you go out. As long as you neglect the cleaning part will fail
