I had a little fun last night with some scrap strap, a welder, a big hammer, a hacksaw, an anvil and a bench vise. A while back I backed into a rock or something and banged the crap out of my diff cover and made it leak. Well, yesterday I unbanged the dent, and built this diff guard. I really have no idea how much protection it'll give me, but I had a blast building it. Its made out of some strap that I didn't measure but pulled out of the scrap heap. Its bolted down at each end, and welded in the middle. I stood on it and it didn't move, so maybe it'll do something. I can remove it too if it ends up being too tall and hitting my gas tank. :D And best of all, my diff doesn't leak.

All it took was time, somehow I managed to get the holes in the right spots, so it lined up pretty good. Maybe an act of God was involved... :crazy:

It was pretty much free too, except for the 4 hours it took me to build it.
