No whole frames yet, but several of the rear frame sections with crossmember lately. I have 2 towed-in over the weekend with front prop failures leading to transmission destruction, and 2 others with a variety of coolant leaks. And, 3 this year where people went to the trouble of dismantling the instrument cluster to tape over, cover with dum dum, or break out the leds for the SES and Three Amigos warning lights!

Glad I'm not the only one who's considered that. Reminds me of an old Simpsons episode

I don't get the drive it until the shaft grenades thing. On mine (bought from Trevor I might add ) when the front u joints were tired I could feel it. They weren't anywhere close to letting go but the vibration was quite noticeable.
I put 50 k on that truck in 14 mos and then gave it to a friend. I replaced on rear caliper that was hanging up and a wheel hub on that same corner as a result of the heat produced. That and the front shaft rebuild was it in 50k.

I just had my wife's D2 front shaft rebuilt with greasable u-joints proactively in fear of the destruction stories. Glad I did it.
