OH. and while I was getting the tires put on I learned that my balljoints had slop, quite a bit. Anyone with a similar setup name any ball joints that won't fail in less than 2 years?

If you try hard enough you can get any ball joint to fail in 2 years.

Or cheap ones can last forever

Hard to say, depends on how you treat them.

I had a neighbor in middle school who would break his dirt bikes predictably 2 weeks after his father bought them or sooner.

After about 4 bikes his dad stopped buying them, told his son "you aren't ready for a motorcycle" and Scott retorted "No dad, the motorcycles aren't ready for me".

True story.

I agree. It's not like I'm out there launching the truck. Or wheeling it, it's a 2wd open diff. I had the factory ones in there for about 3 years before it was time on those. I didn't expect to get 15 years out of the next set, but more than 2 would have been good...

Granted in the last two years I did level the front end, but I put in the proper camber bushings and had it aligned and put bigger tires on it (235/70/15's) But really, from new to sloppy that fast?

Nope, the tapatalk extension doesn't exist for the custom software.

One of the techs developing the software has a promising mobile theme I've already tried it on the test site and it is awesome. No plugin needed the software detects you are in with a phone and shifts automatically. Possibly february before deployment sorry.

When is a post not a post?

In off topic.

Does anyone mind if I don't add that feature to my software?
