Yeah, they were bad. I greased up the slides real good so hopefully they'll wear a little more even.

I agree! My sport trac felt unstoppable after I geared to 4.88s and had aussie lockers front and back.

The one in my Super Lift was nice, very HD.
I had pics of the mod to strengthen that piece up but found the SL Part to be already fixed up.

SL was on the ball.

I wish that was the case with RCD.

Got the crack all welded up and welded a scab plate over top. Hopefully it won't happen again. Now I can start putting the truck back together.

Nice, that cracking was why RCD added the extra angled piece.

Extra angled piece? RCD never did anything to improve that bracket.

I wish RCD would've added that brace. I thought about adding a diagonal one like I did the vertical one but figured if it breaks again I'm going all out.

I got it all half *** put back together just didn't have anyone or a floor jack to help me get the diff back in. I did the front diff by myself the first time and that just ain't flying. lol
