It had gussets on the knuckles and like you said, a truss between the spring mounts. More would've been nice but we didn't expect it to see that kinda impact. More was planned when the money came along for coilovers and stuff, now it's a requirement instead

Both tubes are bent and the driverside is tearing out of the diff. There are a few ways a full truss could've been done, but not in the time we originally had to work with. The HP60 is getting some pretty intense trussing, pics will be up soon. I'm also throwing a truss on the AAM 9.25 on my DD/tow rig/dune toy in the next week or so cuz I'm redoing my front suspension too so I'll post pics of that also.
