We tested it and can pull the carrier, so no disconnects. We had figured on needing disconnects, so pretty happy it worked out. We do need to mount a piece from the bar to the diff cover to span the section in front of the diff. We are thinking that piece will bolt on to the diff cover rather than hard mounting to it to make it easier to install & remove the cover.

We made the front brace stick out far enough that it also should provide some protection to our tie rod. Our tie rod took a beating on the rocks out in Johnson Valley, and we figured it would only be worse in a race situation.

Hopefully this hold up. Lots more metal stacked on this thing than the last one.
