    broke both front rpm arms

    was out bashing yesterday in the dirt and ran into some roots and a couple small rocks etc and took a few big spills, sprayed down my truck last night and this morning discovered that both front arms are cracked in the exact same spot (back side just inside of the middle cross bar) i was quite suprised that this happended but it did. i am going to send them in and hopefully will get a set under warranty but these were less then a week old and i don't consider them to be abused they look new! just curious if anyone else has had this happen to their rpm arms? the image shows the crack location in yellow:

    congratulations, you're the first that I've heard of breaking them lol I was the first I heard of to break the rear diff-housing. Consider it a badge of honor
