I'm designing something like this for all of our trucks hopefully I will have the 1st Gen prototype ready soon. The only thing I don't like about the Boztec is that it don't protect the pinion from being hit. And the 400 price is not so great.

Yes the 1st & 2nd Gen TRD 8.0 and the non TRD 8.4 and the E-locked 8.4 that the new Runners and FJ's have.

That what made start looking onto a diff skid. After looking at the prices on these things I decided to design my own. Hopefully the cost of mine will be a lot lower then the others out there but I really don't know. I really think the most of the cost of the Boztec is labor seeing how every seam it welded that takes time to weld and grind smooth. I have a 20 ton press brake to bend the steel so less labor to cut the cost down and make it stronger then a welded seam.

Of all the stock parts of the truck, the bottom of the rear diff is probably the last one that needs reinforcement.

I'd rather have a weld-on solution to reinforce or replace the REAR of the cover, because that's where the real vulnerability is.

The rear of the diff is what the boztec protects tho

For sure its cool, just for that much $$$ and not covering the pinion Kinda defeats the purpose i have never heard of someone denting the bottom of the axle they are gusseted pretty well. A $50 weld on will protect the back. Although this will keep the rear from hanging up a bit.
