Believe me I was very surprised when Bobby's wheel snaped off .... as long as I have known Bobby he has never lost a wheel but it happens. We figured the spindle which is what broke is about 60 + years old. So I would say it had a long serviceable life.
As far as the new look we are very pleased with it very different for us but it shows what technogolgy has done for our sport.
Glad for all of you who like it !!! we are working on my truck little at a time look closer and you can see some small changes.
