Free sounds a whole lot better than $200 lol. But that's not a bad price ether if they are strong and we'll built.

I like the 9" but the 8.8 might be lighter and just as strong.

RE: my Tj work in progress
here is my axle i been working on for the jeep. coil buckets and lower control arms are all welded in place. the truss is still being worked on. what do you guys think about the truss being so close to the diff. i am trying to keep it low profile for clearance.i have enough axle separation for the 4 link. the number i need is 8.75 and i have 9 to 9.25.

Looks good so far. As long as there is enough distance between the uppers and lowers. I dont see why having the truss lower will hurt things. You could notch it around the housing and lower it another ½", if all you need is 8¾"

Too Many Projects . . .

RE: my Tj work in progress
Yeah I don't see a problem with it ether as long as it meets the measurements you need. There is only one thing I would like to make sure you do. Keep in mind I'm assuming you already planned to do this but I'm mentioning it just in case. Make sure you gusset the truss well. What you have going on in the pic is a great start but you need more metal to insure it does not bend or rip off.

Keep posting pics. It's looking great.
