The IRS differential uses the rear cover as one of its mounting points. This brace stengthens that mounting point, because the cover is only cast aluminum.

This mount has to handle an awful lot of stress when hard acceleration is combined with good traction so it's a good idea to beef it up while it's still inexpensive to do it. (It always gets a lot more expensive after breaking stuff)

As of right now I don't have those. Whether or not I'll get them would depend entirely on the amount of interest there is for them.

These are F cover versions. But if you need the E cover version and request it, I can modify it for you @ no charge.

-The pic is of a handmade prototype; the rest are all CNC cut, jig assembled, and primered.

-You could install this brace in about 10 minutes.

-The longer bolts/washers are not included; they are available from your local hardware store.

I want one. I don't know the difference between the "E" cover and the "F" cover. Are you also the one that does the pinion brace? About to put some power to mine that will require 10" DR's and need to support it.

Thanks
Brad

Look at your diff cover just above the fill plug. There's a part # cast in that begins with "E" or "F".

You can see in this example pic it's "F":

I believe there is another thread on here describing one member who could not fit his trak-loc unit under the "E" cover, but had no problems with the "F" cover. The cover bulge is shaped slightly differently with ribbing on the "E" cover or something like that.....

Here's the E cover for comparison (wow, those rocks look familiar...lol):

Sorry, I forgot to write that info down somewhere. It's easy to figure though....measure the length of the brace's boss and plate together and add it to the length of the threads already on the stock bolt.
