I like it alot. My housing is bent from my dune jumping. I have a HP30 I am setting up now. You were smart to truss it from the bottom, top only mounted ones will still eventually bend.

you welded it to the axle housing ???

how exactly did you do that ..... welding to cast iron is pretty tricky. It requires lots of constant heat etc etc.

Please tell me you had the axle disassembled before you heated up the housing .... otherwise you can kiss all your bearings goodbye.

i think you could get away without disassembling the axle .... as the mount isn't cast iron, and is a few inches from the housing itself ..... I don't think there'll be enough heat transfered to the housing to worry .....

but DON"T take my word for it .... consult with others first

he lost like an inch clearance ?? you can regain that by inflating your tires

that ain't a big deal at all, compared to the protection gained.
I dont wheel in sand, but i doubt it's like getting hung up on a tree stump or rock

I guess the concept of an axle's overall footprint escapes you?
