    They do not make bulk heads for the maxx trucks. But if your spending 8.00 on a set of factory bulk heads you could get a good set of bulk heads and never have to worry about them breaking. just stay away from integy.

    no they dont make it due to its flexibility (I think). aluminum is much better choice as long as you get the good one, together with aluminum skids then cover it with RPM skid plates.

    You are kinda SOL then! RPM cant offer you bulks and stocks are a weak point. Aluminum is your best bet by far. If you spend the money now, you will not likely have to spend it again. $70 for a set of front and rear aluminum bulks is a good deal when you consider that you wont have to worry about it anymore.

    Hope they use different plastic than on their A-arms... The A-arm, shock towers, axle carriers/knuckles are made from the same type of plastic which is more flexible than stock... That's why they don't break as easily because they flex...

    Now the axle carriers have had issues with the pillowballs popping out... Why? Simple, the flexibility of the plastic is allowing them to....

    If they are using the same type of plastic,,, I'd pass on those bulks and just go with a reputable set of aluminum bulks, you will not be disappointed... You get flex in bulkheaqds and you are going to have driveline issues down the road....

    I just did a little reading on their site,,, the plastic is the same but they claim of some re-engineering... To me certain things need to flex and others do not... Bulkheads are definitely on the No-flex list.....
