picked up mine brand new in april of 2012. i have beat the ever living dog piss out of mine..... two axles.... thats all i've broke. sure do love not having a belt. i climb hill faces with jeeps and the jeep guys just shake their heads. i run thought deep water crossings and only have to worry about stuff floating out of the bed. i run through deep mud and snatch out stuff fullsize trucks. in the end, it aint the fastest thing.... but it will make it through and it just lasts.
