BTF D60 Front Truss w/ Ram Mount Pics??

Anyone have any pictures handy of their Blue Torch D60 Front Truss with ram mount? I'm about to start putting mine together and there are a couple of pieces that have me scratching my head.

Thanks,
Richard

Thanks for the pics. I think I see what I was looking for on the back side.

Could anyone tell me how high the diff cover (4 bolts) sticks up above the actual differential?

Thanks,

So it can bolt in to the truss further strengthening it is my guess.

I am wondering what the dimension (inches) is from the top of the differential housing to the top of the diff cover.

The plate that comes up from the diff cover is maybe 3" if I remember correctly? It only sticks up about an inch and a half above the flat part of the truss.

2.75"

Here are some additional pictures of the BTF truss ...

From the back







From the front



Ram sat too high with that truss so ended up cutting the front of it off and located the ram behind the axle.
