    Seems like lately I have been snapping bolts and breaking teeth and when that happens all work comes to a halt.

    Nowadays when I hit a rock I know I better stop and check the pocket bolts for tightness and if I decide naw they are ok and not check , hit another rock and now a bolt is sheared , sometimes the pocket is torqued etc. Just seems like the bolts are not fired as hard or maybe they are made in China now or ? The wheel holes have no slop , I use Green Seize , and I tighten the piss out of them.

    Also noticing that the Greenteeth are breaking alot easier than they use to also

    I run a Rayco 1645 which has the 44K Kubota Diesel

    I'm running 1100 series reds. I have not noticed a change in the bolts, pockets or teeth. I do not have much natural rock to deal with here.
