Gaday has anybody had trouble with there independent front suspension causing fatigue on the chassis on your vehicles driving on dirt roads at speed, especially the utes.
I am in the mood to but a ute but holding till I hear what you all reckon

New; 76 series

Used 76 series or 4.2 TD Patrol

That is all.

Can't say I've heard of any chassis cracking due specifically to IFS. Issues I've personally seen have all been on torsion bar IFS (Cracked lower control arms, broken torsion bar, broken mounting bracket) or due to gross overloading. Most utes have now gone to coil over & when upgraded with a small lift & improved shocks can be far superior to a solid front axle when driving dirt roads at speed.

Have never heard of such issues
Only chassis related issues have been heavily laden and towing related problems but that is from expecting too much from a medium duty vehicle
Ifs issues are breaking CV's on suspension lifts over 2 inches in situations of extreme articulation
