Just finished beefing up my Dana 60 Diff cover...

Spent part of the day doing this to my 60 Diff Cover before installing it.

All 1/4" plate, bent with a shop press and MIG welded onto the diff cover.

Pic of the beginnings...


Pic of everything welded up and ready for some fine grinding work.


Pic of everything ground, and ready for some fine paint work.


Pic of the painted cover.

And a pic of it on the truck...

That should really take a beating! It looked kinda cool with all the big welds on there, you could have left it that way...

Nice work,
Jon

Looks great!Nice job.The only thing I would have add to it would be a ring behind the bolts.I know it is the front but you could still peel it backing up.Cheepin
