okay I went and read about it but it says nothing about the strength I want to shave 2" off the bottom and weld a 1/2 thick steel plate where I removed the materiel

this might help, I've seen somewhere where dana 60's are cut but I can't find it now, I just remember they said to tig weld the piece in and you have to make a new cover.

if I remember correctlly if you shave 2" the ring gear needs to be turned down.strenght is not an issue aslong as the plate you weld on is done properly to the cast.

I cut the lip off mine ( almost 1" ) what a difference that made.

If you do it post some pics

havent seen chink around for quite some time-what's he been up to?

i dont need people to get me,i just need people to get out of my way

if you put 20 grand into a 30 grand buildup,you dont have a $20,000 rig-you're just $10,000 short of having anything.
