    TSM out of Colorado sells the mounting plates. Look in the back of Four Wheeler or Four Wheel Drive magazines for their address

    What axle is it? If its a GM 12 bolt or 10 bolt, you can use the stock backing plates off the front 10 bolt or Dana44. They just need to be modified a tiny bit and work awesome and cheaper than nbuying them. I scrounged em off a spare diff in my back yard for free!
