Many folks already have many of those upgraded parts on their SCT410, such as an aluminum front center drive shaft, etc. Yes, some more parts are lightened, but it will really only take a couple parts to update the handling characteristics if that is what you're looking for: arms and towers. Other things are swap in option parts like the new style of hinge pin holder, or are things you're likely to replace periodically anyway due to wear/slop such as stub axles and spindles.

If you want to immediately upgrade everything, then yes, getting a new truck is probably the best thing to do (though still more expensive...but then you have 2 trucks).
