    (1) Anybody use 3/4" top plates for your Dana 60. How do you like them and were did you get them. I'm using OffRoad Design cross over & high steer.

    (2) I also will use a steering stabalizer, what kind of bracket did you use or fabracate on the top plate to mount the stabalizer. Any pictures?

    Thanks, Ed

    I used the stock 60 plates from a donor truck that the 60 came from. No stabilizer here, but here is a pic of the hi-steer and crossover i have on my 60 and i imagine you could mount a tab off the driver side plate and use u-bolts on the tierod to add a stabilizer.

    i made my own 3/4 plates for my rear 14ff. work great and super beefy. can weld just about anything on top for mounts. and thick to the point i dont need full hole for center pin nut to pop out and show. just drilled 7/8 of the way in and worked perfect.
