I don't know that much can be done to the ring gear itself when it is more than likely deflection causing it to crack.

I am a believer of micro polishing/taking some hardness out. Of course I am not sure how easy this can be done in a quick time. I had a set of used gears in my truck, they had around 100K on them, picked them up used on craigslist. Ran them for 3+ seasons, and the carnage I saw.
1. Blew the internals out of an ARB
2. Broke the welds on a welded open rear
3. Went through numerous sets of axle bolts
4. Wadded up a set of traction bars(which destroyed a rear yolk, broke ball joints off the front, as well as front axles.

Never once did I have a rear ring gear fail.
I feel a used set of gears has basically been through a long process of micropolish and had the harness taken out.

PS I also set them up as tight and as deep as possible(tight enough that grabbing the rear tire and spinning them took a little bit of effort)

I also know someone that bought a used set of gears that had been in a truck for several thousand miles and never broke it after. Was getting 3-4hooks out of new gears.
