no dummy. this would be a truggy. gawd your dumb sometimes


maybe i missed it. but all the trussing on the bottom side of the axle. is this so you dont bend it when jumping? when mudbogging isnt it best to have as little drag as possible. couldnt you have trussed the top and maybe just a couple small gussets on the bottom. and saved yourself from having a snow plow axle.

The reason for big bottom truss is because it's a cad ( center axle disconnect) axle and long side tube is very weak. Also with all the coil brackets it's hard to make a good truss on top to support the cad.
