I like building things myself but I am coming to realize that sometimes it is more economical to buy something rather than spend hours and hours building it and redoing it since I am never content.
priorities, the buggy is more important

On their website they do not offer an unwelded version. The last welded diff covers I bought looked like shit. They had nasty undercut and some porosity. I know nobody will see it but it bothers me. I will try calling ruffstuff and see what I can work out.

I finally got the workshop cleaned out, mostly setup and the buggy brought in. I guess that means I have to get off my lazy ass and start working on the buggy!

If pricing is stupid for an unwelded cover, check out TMR Customs... My brother has one on his 14bolt, and he has a 15 bolt conversion they make and it is a pretty sweet item...

Never mind about the TMR 15 bolt... I looked at your pictures and it looks like you have one...

I'm moving to Colorado for work in April for 6 month. I have a feeling it won't be done before then.

The shittiest place in the whole state, fort Morgan. The place smells like a dirty diaper. We do work at a plant there and the girlfriend and i decided to just stay out there instead of flying back and forth. I'm hoping to find a house to rent between there and Denver.
