What can be done to avoid those problems u had with the AVM?I think they are great aside from the problems I had with them. However if you permanently lock them you won't have to spend any money and it will not harm anything other than your fuel mileage (if it is even noticable at all). Permanently locking them is no different than having a '01-up Ranger 4x4. It all comes down to what you prefer. Personally I like having them, but if I broke/lost another set I would just swap over to the live axle setup instead of buying another set of the AVM's.
Edit: I just noticed you're from Rio Grande City, is that the Rio Grande in Jersey?
They fall off the hub and you never see them again. Nothing you can do that I'm aware of. As for your problem I'd say check all the u-joint and the cv joint in the driveshaft. Make sure it isn't bent, it is possible that it is off balance.What can be done to avoid those problems u had with the AVM?
I searched and most common was that they fall off or something like that, They fall from the rotor? or does it fall apart? Right now I have them locked inn, but had to remove the front driveshaft due to vibration, since I brought this up, what could be this problem? front ujoint looks ok, what about the other end(transfer-case end). Anything to check there? Damn, SORRY ABOUT THE 100 QUESTIONS... And no, Its Rio Grande City, Texas. Thanx buddy.
The front driveshaft has alot of play on the cv joint end not the u-joint. The rubber boot has a rip all across. It has up/down play and makes a popping sound. The CV can also be moved in and out, but not sure if thats normal.They fall off the hub and you never see them again. Nothing you can do that I'm aware of.

Thats exactly what i ask myself. Should I throw $150 or just leave the stocks locked inn. The thing is that I dont use the 4x4 very offten, so ill be wearing down the cv axles and what not, for no reason. Im totally confused on getting them.I had a set of AVMs and the c clip holding my halfshaft in the hub broke and the cv axle was flinging around and it shredded both my AVMs, unfortunately... Those little plastic clip things holding the innards of the hub together broke on one and the other one was just totally exploded. So i put the hub back on each side and just put the two gears in the hubs on the halfshaft in a manner so they're permanently locked for now, im not sure whether i should drop the 130 on a new set of AVMs or whether or not i should get a set of stockers..... this is just frustrating to me that they would use plastic for the innards, whether its military grade or not, its plastic.
