Gussets, Sleeves, Trusses Oh My!

How many of the locals have gussets and sleeves/trusses on their Rubi Dana 44 with 35" tires?

Or, have you gone without for a period of time without issue?

Do you have sleeves or trusses?

I have 34" tires on my JKUR but the axle has not yet been reinforced and I am trying to figure out how soon I need to pursue this mod. I have read stories of axles bending from potholes on the street.

While I get out into the back country as much as I can, I am a go around kind of wheeler. I prefer not risk damage and costs trying to crawl over the biggest boulders if I can go around to get where I am going.
I drive a JKUR. Everywhere I look I see places I want to drive up, over, or through.

I put the Evo c-gussets on right when I got my 35's. Now that I'm running 37's I'm welding on the Artec truss in a week or two when it's not so darn cold out.

I would definitely do gussets at a minimum since they're cheap insurance to help keep your c's safe.

IMO as long as you're not overly stupid in what you're putting your rig through, I think you'd be fine with just gussets and 35's. But then there are people that do gussets, sleeves AND a truss for 35's which I think is just dumb. Pick gussets and one of the others and be done with it.

Any recommendation on where to go to get the c-gussets done?
