2x8 cylinder I gave derrick36 the part numbersWhat size cylinder did you use?
Thx - I know all about thier products, I'll have one on my D60 as well :thumbupThe diff cover is 1/4" plate and the ring is 1/2". Great Lake Offroad did not see any problems with it and plus they have a lifetime warranty so I'm not too concerned. There are some very close tolerance bends in the cover and it looks to be machine welded (or a damn good welder). These two in combination provide a lot of strength.
Yes, the tab is welded to the outer ring on the diff cover. I'll see what kind of picture I can get in there.
