    OK, a few small details to finalize but here ya go.

    These will be available in the next week or so. We will be adding a anti wrap bar as an option. They will also be available with or without the guardsman and adjusted accordingly.

    These will be made available with hardware as much as possilble. Not sure how we are going to work this just yet due to the dizzying array of diffcovers out there and different material thicknesses used to make them.

    These will be added to the website very soon. Pricing for the truss is $195.00. Just to be clear that is without the guardsman.

    I really like that. Whats the price looking to be at?

    Is there any way that you can round about the Diff bolt length by what it would be for a stock cover(making the bolt go as deep as possible), that way size can very.

    How 'bout...

    A shock tab to add a lateral shock instead of a bar? Since I've never seen a dual shock kit for the rear of my 93, anything to add a little more compression control would be nice... I was thinking a single REALLY long remote rez shock from the top of that truss to a mid mounted crossmember, or even an adjustable coilover setup...

    Got to get a blazer in the shop to set one up on. Something a little more normal than mine!

    so, school me on the purpose of this. i can see it being a good place to hook up an anti-wrap. and i could see it adding strength - but is the 14bff really lacking in strength? i've wondered about trusses in the past ... always curious. :)

    14 bolts are beef, you can use this for anti wrap, upper link mounts (my intended application) and to keep from spinning a tube. I've heard quite a few reports in the last couple years of 14bff's spinning tubes. Admittedly a somewhat rare occurance but it'd ruin your day in a hurry.

    Absolutely the 14BeeFF is beef. The only problems I hear of with any repetition is the spinning of tubes as stated by MikeyDo5. Thanks Mikey.

    That being said, Whether or not you need something like this is up to you. I will be building a one off for my blazer. Why I feel I need one? I have a Caddy motor spitting 525 ft. lbs. of torque through a 465/203/205. Figure the torque the rear axle is seeing, I will gladly take all the strength augmentation I can and get an anti wrap for them 4 leaf 52's at the same time.

    No better place to put an anti wrap setup then exactly in the middle.

    Yes, this can be used in conjunction with the inboarding shock kit. Have been speaking with a few customers on incorporating the lower shock mount onto the axle clamp.

    are you planning on making an antiwrap setup (bars, crossmembers, blah blah blah), that you will sell as a packaged deal?

    We are working towards the anti wrap setup right now. Won't be long.
