As far as upgrading the upper arms goes, I seem to be the only person to ever destroy their upper links on a 5th gen so I'm not sure it's worth the $. It has been said that they don't endure much stress. The lower arms I personally think it's best to wait till they get bent (If they do). But I'm a break it then upgrade it kind of guy.
I am trying to be proactive if possible especially after my experience this past week and the scare of being stranded with no reception and 70 miles from the nearest civilization and >300 miles from home. If you saw my other thread about TB failure, I am feeling even more cautious. I also have bent a front alignment cam tab already and hammered it back and got an alignment again. I have the marlin crawler cam tab reinforcements and RCI rear link skids in the garage waiting to be welded in once I have time as well.

I have learned that being prepared has helped. I also had to change my friend's alternator out there in the forest and luckily we carry full tool sets to do so.

I do have a garmin messenger in case, but a tow would probably cost way more than proactively buying the parts. Even for just the uhaul and trailer it cost me $400 to tow myself home from Craig.

That being said I am running a significantly upgraded UCA with Heim joint, not sure how that would compare to the OEM UCA.
thats good to hear. I wouldnt run OEM arms with just 3 of the links.
