    So, did you end up fabbing up that cover? If so, very nice work.

    Nope, that’s a Barnes4WD part. They have some quality stuff.

    The rear truss was finally delivered. It took a couple weeks to get it after the order.

    Started welding about 6:30 this am and just finished up at 3:00. That felt like a lot of welding, for a desk jockey anyway.

    No, the manufacturer said the truss doesn’t need to be welded to the center section. Really for this application there is no need. If someone was running a 3 or 4 link with no track bar, it might be good idea to weld it to the center section.

    Changed my mind and welded the horizontal planes on the front and back of the differential. The axles are at Harmon 4-Wheel Drive getting the gears and lockers!

    Yukon zip air locker in the front and Yukon grizzly automatic locker in the rear. I was going to run an arb in the rear but decided the advantages were not worth the extra expense.

    Custom 60 tooth tone rings. These will make the computer happy. I will press these onto the rear 14 bolt axle hubs, install the provided brackets to the axle and use the factory ABS sensors. The Front Superduty Dana 60 has 60 tooth count tone rings already. To make the 60 count rings work with the computer, an app called OBD JScan will be used to change the factory setting from 52 to 60. Btw, if you have a JK or newer wrangler, this low cost app in invaluable to change factory default settings.
