i dont have any numbers for the mn12 IRS, but my cobra IRS weighs ~80lbs more than the live axle i took out of my car.
the performance gain is in sprung weight vs. unsprung weight.



nick, heres a few shots of my front diff brace. it picks up on the LCA bolts and the front diff bolts. saves the front ears of the diff from quite a bit of flex.

I asked that and then I was watching Xtreme 4x4 and saw the same one on one of the trucks they were building and found out.

if you need, i can get my buddy to make you a top for your cell just like mine. you will be able to use the factory o-ring and the top will have to be tig welded onto the cell...

Actually, that was a thought that came to mind, but the cell sits too low for that to work. Im working on makin a filler neck for it.
