panty droppin rear axle trusses

I'd like to see pictures of your badass rear axle trusses. I don't want to see the pre-made weld on unit you just got in the mail Post up the sick ass, dimple died, go fast holed, entire axle truss that you built to drop that fucker out of an airplane at 30,000' or to fool bitches at the local hooters into thinking you just raced the baja 1000. Bonus points for trusses that also run over the back side of the axle too and I need some good ideas on how to still get the cover off for service.

Here's some of one I built on my brother's d70 rear a while back. Its not super bling but it is super stout. That round tube is 3/8" wall and is welded all the way accross the top of the chunk as well as the top fo the back as you can see in the pic. I pre-heated and post-heated the welds the entire way accross the chunk. I wish I had the tools that I have now back then because it really could have been blingier but its all a part of progress I guess. Its no tower of go-fast holes like your last one but I guess we see how much good it did you. He has about 1/5 the hp that you do though so it doesn't have to hold up to much. Of course, he didn't mess with a 60 rear to begin with. That's the 70HD witht he gihugic axle tubes and stock 35-spline shafts:





Yes, the pics were taken with a cell phone.

Not near as pimp as Lorens (that shit gives me wood) but it's effective and looks good. Lots of people ask me if the tube passes through the center section.

Here's mine on a Toy housing. The spare tire should take care of "Looking like I just raced Baja" effect you mentioned.

I'd love to see something like this on a 60/70/14 bolt and how you would pull that off cleanly cuz that to me would be the ultimate in strength. Keep em coming, everything posted looks baller so far.

Dana 60 - hand made with cut-off wheel love.





Don't have any straight on shots of it in - not enough room in the shop to get a good angle

Top & link brackets are 3/16, rest plated with 1/8

Air bump pads will be outboarded as much as possible.

Be aware of axle warpage if you're doing this much welding.

Look at the one on Fred's "funbuggy" that was built at Polyperformance. It had a center portion that bolted in.

Here is the rear of my KOH buggy -





The truss on the rear of Kevin Yoder's buggy is one of the coolest rear 60 trusses I've ever seen. I don't know where to find pics though.
