    Agreed. The front diff doesn't need to "keep up". It's in 2WD the majority of the time with the rear end doing the majority of the work.

    I couldn't imagine someone not getting the truss, I figure anyone looking into an aftermarket axle has a heavy ass truck and/or going to be abusing it & since they take care of it in house it's a no brainer. But yeah, my curiosity was about weight with the truss since it brings it up stronger than the RJ60 housing.

    Also I didn't know they offered a 3.5 tube upgrade for the 9, wouldn't have thought the larger tube would be compatible with our bearing adapters. Or do they custom machine those in house?

    You didn't get the optional weld-on skid for the bottom of the 9?

    How much wider over stock did you request?

    No idea how they do the bearing adapters. I didn’t think about the skid. Hmmm. How much more was that?

    I went with 68” wms-wms.

    Looks kinda janky, but would still add some protection on the front side for when you're crawling

    Yeah I'm not sold on the front part. I'm just gonna have the add the weld on skid to the main housing. Once I get the axle installed and everything set I'll see how things line up and decide if I'm going to do a pinion guard or not.

    I also asked them to leave one of the bottom studs out. I'm going to use a bolt instead and use that as my drain plug and that front part of the skid would be annoying.

    I do the same thing on my older pickup. A quick tack weld on the drain plug will keep it from falling out too. I've seen that happen a few times.
