I may or may not ever drop my Gas Tank again (installing Savvy Gas Tank Skid), and so I too a pic of how my Tri Link truss was mounted to the top of my Solid Axle diff.... there was some shaving of the flat part of the diff involved, but the stock RE bolt on the front D44 truss was not going to work on this axle... I acutally like how it ended up and have been happy with it (other than the brakes and the other stuff I whined about)...

Maybe this might help someone else down the road...

...and yes that is Silver/Chrome paint on the diff cover... it's what I had handy the last time I changed my fluid... it will get painted black the next time I do it, although it might look spiffy next to the Savvy Aluminum Gas Tank Skid...

I had it for another "project"... I think I might look for an excuse to swap in a Riddler diff cover anyhow next time I do a diff fluid change.... NOT painted in Krylon Chorome...

I didn't say I was proud about it, or bragging about my bad *** painted chrome diff cover....

I got a nice rear axle...with a painted chrome diff cover (for now)...THE END!

I know...

But Jerry B. would still think it's "overweight" even if his axle probably weighs more than mine with the Superior Truss he slapped on recently

If nothing else, maybe I can update to stainless cap bolts to replace the rusted ones in there now

very nice. that's one of the options ive been looking at to replace my junk. solid, currie and dyna - kinda low, med and omfg. a 44/9" combo or 44/44 shouldn't be too bad. if i save thru the summer i could go 60. low cog, 44/60 and 38's would be pretty good for me. decisions decisions.

For how much time and effort for all the little stuff I've done to this setup, I honestly probably could be running a Dynatrac or Currie rear end for the same $$$ I spent... and I might do things differently if I were to do it all over again, but the axle itself has been good and I think the SOLID stuff is good...just question some of the things they bolt onto it and some of the customer support I received (I think Matt at Solid has a Voodoo Doll of me @ his desk...)
