You'll get a 50/50 split on this one. If you are wheeling hard then they may not hold up. What is the weakest link in your drive train? That is what will break first.

Well I am unsure of the weakest link I'm still working on fixing the po's "good" work ha I just removed all the body mounts relocated some back to the original place and threw away all the half in rubber squares they put in to make a bigger body lift an I also clean up a speedo I found in a box in the back of it when I got it I hope it works ha it's the one that instead if saying ten or twenty mph it just says 1,2,3,4.... IRS cool looking

I wouldn't use them for anything extreme on the trail. That's just one more link in the chain that could break. Light duty would be ok though.

I would use them with no worries but I do not do any serious offroading. I only see light trails and the beach.

Buy a quality brand, not cheap flea-bay knockoffs, your life depends on the quality of them.
Just make sure to install them to the mfg's specs. Do not over or under torque.
Re-check the torque often at a slightly lower setting so you don't break the Lock-Tite loose.

I've never had any problems with mine, although it is a PITA to have 40 lug nuts to keep up with.

Wheeled mine pretty hard with 35's and I had no issues. like stated before, but quality ones, follow the directions, and don't worry about it.
