Anything you drive hard...whether it be a truck or car is going to wear out faster then a babied vehicle. Some of what you listed is normal wear and tear, and some of it is because you drive the truck hard. I've seen your other threads, you aren't easy on it. So repairs beyond basic maintenance is expected.
My dad babied my Bronco for 8 years before I bought it off of him. And i've babied it since then, for the most part. It has 150k miles on it and its had no major repairs, except the fuel pump and a few pairs of brakes...which is also basic maintenance because the truck is just naturally hard on brakes with the weight of it and the torque converter.
