Well like I said in the beginning y'all make top notch quality stuff but you also have kind of a monopoly on your stuff and I'm just showing everyone what I have and will let them know how it works and if I can make a 2 1/2 ton axle work in a jeep I'm sure after a little bit of trial and error I can make this work just as well and your set up I do appreciate your input and any outher for that matter but I can break tons of these and still not cost me near what your set up does
I'm just a broke American trying to have a little fun and save some money lol

Subscribed. Often thought about attempting a swap when I get the K motor going. I was thinking of trying the Caddy/getrag rear end the Miata's guys put in.

Bro 8.8 are best and if you do not care about having a cast iron instead of aluminum you can get 1 out of a old t Bird

do yourself a favor and get a rear cover from a 03ish explorer 4 door. They dont have that retarded nub for a mount... search for my thread where I made mine.. you'll see how much easier it is and how much more room you have to work with.

its not that the cover you have wont hold up, its that the explorer cover makes mounting it up in the car super easy. All the rear mount requires is a little trimming of the cover so it tucks up close to the stock mount good and a flat piece of steel/aluminum with 6 holes drilled in it.
