    I'm going to blast it, re-paint & throw it back on after the diff swap.

    I've got another vendor working on a trac bar setup - I hope to keep the skid with it but I'm not sure how it's going to work. :eek:

    Yes, but i think the skid may mount right where the trac bar does...
    We'll see. ;)

    Just wanted to post up and say thanks for making an awesome diff skid. I would have hit my diff hard last weekend at slickrock but the diff skid saved my diff. The diff is one of the lowest parts of our trucks and this skid gives me the piece of mind I need. Anyone who plans on wheeling needs one of these.

    It's that time once again. :eek:

    The NE weather is taking its toll. This time I'm taking them down to bare steel before I repaint them.

    About 15min with an 80 grit flap wheel on the angle grinder:

    I don't even want to think about what the diff and third member would look like without this. :eek:

    They take a lot of man hours to build and
    I'm the only one in the shop that can build them, I just don't have the time anymore. And with low orders last year I pulled them from the site. Until I can redesign them so my guys can build them we won't be offering them on the site.

    Hope you are able to bring these back into production Jerry. I installed a Boztek diff skid today for a friend and we has all kinds of fitment issues. :mad:

    The skid itself had very stout construction and quality hardware. The issue was the design: unlike yours which is a "full coverage" piece, this skid has a hole for access to the drain plug. Kinda mystified by this considering that is one of the pieces that you're trying to protect with one of these...:notsure:

    It took an hour of fiddling with my angle grinder and air-grinder to enlarge the hole as it was not centered properly for the drain.

    I'll also note that the front of the diff skid did not come forward as far as your design which left the 3rd member flange exposed.

    Here are some pics of what I'm referring to:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    From the inside:

    [​IMG]

    Also trimmed a bit on the collar mount.
    [​IMG]

    You can see that my buddy already kissed some rocks with his diff. :rolleyes:

    This piece will offer protection over nothing at all but IMO it is an inferior design compared to the BAMF product.

    Just my $.02 :oops:
