LT guys have you reinforced where your a arm mounts ?

i went to the fab shop and saw this rhino out front. this is the second one i've seen at the shop getting repaired in the last week.
camera phone pics sorry about the quality
apparently the a arm ripped out of the frame then broke the ball joint.

Wow, I'm seeing a lot of this lately (or I'm just finally aware of it more).

Is that a result of running these really hard, or is it more to do with bad geometry of the aftermarket A-arms?

running hard 5, if you look there is not a hole lot meat there where the a arms connect. If your going to be jumping and riding dirty def, weld these on..

yep. when i dropped off my rhino the guy mentioned that i might want to do it. it cost me 79 front and rear and 100 bucks to weld em on but the alternative is $600 if it's not broke because its a teardown and re install of the lt.. i don't wanna know what it could potentially cost to fix that.
