Trail-Gear Creeper U joints anybody running them?

Anybody runnin the Trail Gear creeper U joints? Are they ALOT stronger than oem? Im running one already in my TG longspline shaft now at the rear of my front shaft now with no problems yet. Split two yokes this weekend and just placed an order for four Creeper u joints. Gonna sleeve the collar on my next yokes and see how much better they hold up. I guess with 39 reds, 23 spline cases and chromo 80 axles something has to give and oem yokes are cheap and easy to replace.

Junkyard parts are getting harder to find around here. If the tg joints are noticeably stronger than an oem rePlacement (not a Kragen or vato zone joint), I'd like to hear about it. I haven't had a joint failure problem, but have broken some flange yokes.
