    There is really no reason to unless yours breaks.It just helps with the durabilaty and helps with heat but I wouldnt get it. Just my opinion.

    The king headz helps dissipate the heat will run cooler, also metal bearing adapter won't melt
    Drive it.Break it.ebuild it.

    You will reduce flex on the drivetrain and it absorbs heat from your motor. Another point at the King Headz mount is the bigger bearing that isnt much susceptible to dirt and heat, some people said.

    To answer your question, if you run your truck, the motor mount will eventually go out. The small bearing gets hot and melts the bearing adapter which will ruin your spur gear. The Kings Headz motor mount utilizes a larger bearing which can handle more heat. It is much less prone for bearing failure. If you dont have an Ultimate or a Platinum edition you also need a metal bearing adapter. It is a needed upgrade. You wait and see.
