My tacoma's about to go to the shop to get the rear long travel done and at the same time I'm going to box the frame in the rear and add some gussets here and there to strengthen it up. Is there other areas I can box or gusset for added strength? What are some weak areas I should keep an eye on? I drive hard and occasionally jump it so I want to prevent anything from getting broken.

Now before you say get a full cage, I already know that's what I need but I can't afford it yet. I have spent all my money on the fr & rr long travel and have been told it'll be $6000 or more for a full cage front to rear. Maybe next year's tax return but can't do it now.

Thanks in advance.

Alright, maybe my question is not being understood. How about you guys with long travel just start naming off some areas you've seen brake, crack, bend, etc....
