Here U go Luciano. We can cut brace for the truss off and it will look like their regular one. It's really sturdy.

^^^Nice time lapse. I didn't have the urge to go out in it today with the Jeep. Did take the Jetta out, lol. Good Times.

As far as the cover, it's already got the holes for the 44 bolt pattern, so I can mate it up to my 44 or the GLO cover I have and trace where to cut. I have a real nice portable band saw that I have to justify the expense somehow, so I can cut it to the outline, then round the edge with the grinder and you're good to go. How does half of whatever BTF charges for a cover sound? I'll have to look, it's like 80 or 90 bucks on their website.

Well, if you really have to have Riddler, or maybe just one for the front and then get Ed's, you dont want to miss this.

You should, in no way, take any of this personally. It's just business. So to recap, I come in peace, I mean you no harm, and you all will die. Gallaxhar out.

Ed, Im very tempted to buy that diff cover. Question though, do you have the fill plug, mounting hardware, and are you willing to ship it to me?

The reason Im so torn about the riddlers is not only would I prefer matchup diff covers but the mounting hardware is recessed into the cover protecting any bolts from being torn off on rocks.

No, No, and No.... hahahaha. Yes, I got all the hardware and if you want it shipped, no problem.

I hear you on the recessed hardware. The hardware used is socket head cap screws, black oxided. Should be pretty strong, but what I would consider doing is counter-sinking the bottom two/three bolts a little if you are worried.

I was just throwing this out there to maybe save you some coin. If you like the Riddlers, def get them, it's only like 50 bucks more I think. I have GLO covers for the front/rear new axles. I was nosing around recently and found out they are JP tested bulletproof Those dudes crack me up.

No problemo. I'll find use for it (target practice) or sell it one way or the other. Down here at Krazy Ed's Jeep Parts, we're slashing prices on everything!

Yeah, I'm kinda jealous of that big green beast. My Brother in law says it feels like offroading in a Cadillac because its so smooth.

Buy once, cry once. You two have sweet rigs plus you have a frame, and that means it will hold together when you bolt the Volvo portals to it. Partial to black right now, but then again, I had a red TJ... haha.
