Finger, nose, leg and ankle. I believe that the only replaceable ones are knees and hips though.

I've put a hole in my radiator. I've lost a spark plug (took out threads with it) such that I rode home on a trailer. Exploded an inner wheel bearing on the freeway.

Anything you can break on a truck, I've seen broken on the trail. Anything can happen out there.

after running Dusy my truck makes a bunch of strange noises and creaks a lot more than it used to. I just keep waiting for something to fall off, LOL

When i had ifs, get ready the list is long.. CV's (i almost broke 30 before i went solid), Balljoints (upper and lower), front and rear drive shafts got twisted like a pretzel, front diff blew peices of the ring and pinion out the side, rear ring and pinion has broke, 2 rear axles broken, spider/side gears exploded once, tore the rear shackle off the frame (thank god for people with onboard welders) i cant think of anything else now, but it goes to show ya that everything under there can and will break if you give it enough hell. IMO carry spare, CV's, a spare rear 3rd, spare front and rear driveshafts with u-joints, upper and lower ball joints and you should be ok, and of corse all the normal stuff....

I havent ever broke anything on my taco but it hasn't really been in any bad situations. No rocks here in mobile ala. The only thing I have seen broken on a taco was my cousins we where jumping hills on a powerline and getting about 15' of air it did alright the first but the second time on impact blow the beads on the driver side front tire. Not to mention was extremely stuffing his 33"s into the from fenders. He used to have it on video a buddy of ours filmed it.
