Bringing this back up since I got some PMs. My kid is finally at an age that I can run an angle grinder/cut-off wheel with out him thinking the world is coming to an end. So if anyone has a bracket that they need plated feel free to contact me.

The old way of sending a plated one and waiting for a core return is dead to me.

If you haven't got a new Beefed up Kurt fab differential support bracket #2.........I Highly recommend it........because it really sucks crap when it breaks, and they never want to break that bracket, as it will break at the very Worst time, and you'll be screwed!!!!!

Pics show for me.

As Robert says, something well worth considering if you wheel it.

I had a t4r member request this service from me but I no longer have the setup to provide this. I've been re directing any requests to this thread and Kurt based on his latest thread posts. Let me know if this is an issue Kurt.

Default Passenger front diff bracket

Did mine, cost me 4 dollars for the metal rod at Lowes then welded half, BFH to bend after the curve in center, weld then BFH again to get some more curve Enjoyed it was first time I went thicker than exhaust or sheet metal with my crappy flux core since I modded it (D.C. Conversion, cap and heavy duty ground) and it did amazingly well to such thick metal.

I'm one to support doing your own work but...while what you have done probably has added a little strength, you really needed flat bar to extend around the entire round top part of the bracket as that appears to be where most of them break and I'm not sure you have much penetration with those welds. It looks like the hot metal is more just sitting on top like slag, rather than getting a run of penetration. Again it probably isn't worse than stock, but maybe grind some of that metal down and maybe see if you are getting penetration and run some new beads. It appears from the pictures you have lots of holes in the welding. I had a similar problem when I welded my relocated body mounts. Wyatt redid my welds because he felt I didn't have enough penetration and the beads were not flowing. His were so much better.

Thanks, it has good penetration I just kinda went over to attempt to make the flux welds look better lol. I was not aware of where the breakage was but I have more metal so I can pull it back off in the future and make it go around it The first pass on the first side didn't have a good penetration but tinkered with the settings on the elder and saw a huge difference and the stock bar did respond much better once it was heated as well!

when I did these I would heat the 2 bolt hole end really well with a torch until the bracket was warm to the touch on the far end with the bushing then I welded from the bushing side back to the 2 hole side.

Clamps will pull the flat plates into the contour of the bracket. No hammer needed though I'm sure its fun. I haven't seen any counts of the newer thicker brackets breaking without plates so any added strength is good measure.
