It's tempting to cheap out on certain components on your truck, but when when it comes down to a 2" wheel adapter thats holding your wheels to your truck, I would be more than willing to spend the extra money for a peace of mind. Just think, if that aluminum EVER failed down the road, I bet you would wish that you spent that extra couple hunderd dollars for a steel one. It could save you huge headaches, repair bills or even you life.
I was stuck in the same situation as you a few months ago (steel vs aluminum) but I think I will be happy with my choice knowing that the steel ones will stand up. Aluminum could fatigue over time, these trucks are not light, I wouldn't want to take the chance!
