See what I mean?

Anyway I like the truss but as others have said it doesnt really do much for that axle(not that I know personally, just from what I've read up on them) however its always nice to practice so I say have at her.

You make some decent-looking welds. I'd have saved the flap wheel effort and just wire-wheeled the welds and painted it!

Looks nice all cleaned up, though.




It's your truck and your money--truss away!

The plates were not level with each other so it didnt look as good. Had some 1/4 steps between the plates.


OttawaXJ, I guess Im a liberal then.
By Liberal I meant how much people are worrying about what someone else does.

Just need a few more parts before I can throw the rear axle in.



These will be morphed into my existing leaf pack, no more lift block and stock ride height.

You could have a spring place put some more arch in those spring leaves to help with the lift.

Did you weld it while on the housing?
I did one off the housing and it warped the everliving shit out of it! Took a lot of grinding to get it flat again.

Most places machine the diff cover mounting surface flat after they weld them, but they also run thick material around the bolt pattern section which gives the axle more strength. The way he built it the mounting surface may still have some give in it and allow it to seal properly.

I have made 4 of them with zero problems. It is thin enough that the bolts will pull it straight.

Ran the grinder for hours today. Cleaned up the new leafs, got larger center bolts.





Welded my axle tubes.

what kind of spring rate are you going to get with your mix and match pack?

looks like it's going to be "blood in my piss" stiff.

fuck that, I must be getting old. I likes my air ride.

also, it looks like the second leaf stops short of the main leaf eyes, concerned about bending/cracking the main leaf with the ends hanging out like that and such a stiff pack underneath?
BTDT, had two main leaves bent on my jeep because of it.

It will work just fine when I finish it.


The ride will be a bit rough, no worse than the cummins i used to have.

So is the idea that it gets read by people you've run over? Or that it leaves a stamp if you reverse into some thing low? In which case it should probably be 'written' backwards so whatever you reverse into reads the right way round.

I kinda think he should have put "God bless our troops and differentials" on there.

I think we need to see it being held up by topless girlfriend.
Make sure she is standing in front of a running (on max cold, high fan) air conditioner.

That would turn into a huge thread. My pissed off face is pretty good, especially with a shaved head and beard.
