I figured this would be the best forum for this topic being for protection. Move in need be :bigthumb .

I just got my 2 diff covers in the mail. And I have a design in mind but not perfected. Anybody have any custom built cages or reinforced diff covers. I have access to a welder and I can weld (finally learned).

Here is what I have now. I figure the same design but make to where I can bolt it on. It is 1/4 steel strap and I will prolly add 2 more straps to this design criss-crossing diagonally.



You can see in goes down the most outer part of the cover sideways and up and down. Any ideas if my new design is good? Does anyone have a better one?

I know its not an X but ya'll would know better than most.

Looks stronger than stock, assuming your welds are good. Why is the cover all pock marked?

Thats dents from the rust I sand blasted off. Thats why I get new covers. I'm confident in my welds so I guess I should be set. Now I just need to truss over the pumpkin and make a single point traction bar.
