Default Steering box upgrade?

I have a 2010, 3500 that spends most of its life on dirt/ logging roads. I bought it with 83000 KM on it and everything was fine, sense then I have had to replace both front u-joints, both rear axle seals and now my steering box seal is gone. Im currently around 111000Km, what other problems are on there way? And is there any upgrades short of an aftermarket lift kit that may help.

I must admit my truck is set up as a mechanical service truck and is loaded with probably 5000-10000 lbs a day depending on what im doing, maybe thats my problem.

rough roads and weight are not a good combination. not sure what other problems you can expect

Wheel bearings/hubs. They wear much faster on rough roads and heavy loads.
