I have the gussets welded on the C's. A little too late though as mine are already bent but not enough to replace the whole housing. One of mine is much worse than the other but I think they are cheap insurance even if they only make it 10% stronger. Dave at Taboo Customs does these for less than $50 a pair and if your local he'll even weld them on. The EVO gusset is much larger and sits right up against the coils. Taboo's are 3 1/4" plate pieces welded around the C. Home -

I am getting some of these C-Gussets next month. With 35" tires, it will definitely help strengthen a weak point. If you wheel with big tires, it's a good thing to have.

kind of off the original topic but besides the 4.10 gear, is there any difference between the Rubi rear 44 axle and the ones on the X's and Saharas?

The guy from the project JK pic was running 40's. That's what his profile says anyway. Here's an idea, don't run 40's on stock axles.

Edit: His profile also says that he is running Dynatrac Pro Rock 60 Front w/Competition Shafts & CTM U-Joints. So he may not have had 40's on there when the break occurred, but, I think that that break is something that wouldn't happen on an axle running 35's.

Also 32 spline vs. 30 spline axles. That's why you see lockers spec'ed for JK Dana 44 except Rubicon and then another listing for the Rubicon.
