Ok, you're right I should have been more specific. I was hoping to hear something like: on this vechicle the ____ tends to break more than anything else, start with that.
I think that a lot of people seem to conflate mods with improvements - I don't. A tuner chip is great but that is a performance mod. There is no reason to think it would improve the life of the truck. But I know nothing about that so feel free to correct me if I am wrong.
I come at this from the following perspective: when something breaks on my truck I not only want to fix it but I want to upgrade it. To me it is not a repair job - it is a mod opportunity.
You mentioned Tie-rod and ball joint are these the most common things to break on these trucks? If so what is the more long lasting replacement.
Before I found this discussion board I mused this very question out loud to a friend of mine. His answer: get a Tacoma. That kinda stung but my sister had one for over 10 years and NOTHING broke on that truck. Annoying.
