Last January I had the D30 re-geared to 4.88. While I have the axle out and replacing the rear main seal it is probably a good time to do some bracing, trussing and general, all around, strengthening.

There are any number of truss, C-bracket, and heavy duty options to weld or insert. Looking for what folks here might have done they were the most happy with.

Thanks!

I did the C braces on my 30. That was it...
