I'm coming up on my third set of ball joints and was wondering if anyone has ever seen or used Ball Joint Deletes?

Ball Joint deletes are not king pins.....These mount in place of the ball joints and seem to work like king pins.

That's the one question I didn't ask. But I found out that these are substantially stronger than ball joints and they solve a design flaw on Dodge trucks in regards to the misalignment of the pivot joints. This misalignment causes the hub to move up and down slightly when rotating back and forth which causes wear on the ball joints.

How are they stronger? That is false advertising. The pin is the same size with EMF or theirs regardless. The EMF are 4140 billet chromoly. Like David said they are creating a problem that doesn't exist to sell their product.
Anything stronger than 4140 you wouldn't be able to afford.
They're through bolted instead of a captured ball. The ball can tear out and is more prone to loosening up.
