Last month we mentioned that this housing is available with monster-sized axletubes for abusive drivers. Our housing uses the more common 3-inch tubes, but the larger housing below (normally used for trophy trucks) will take from 31/2- up to 4-inch axletubes. The arrows indicate where the tubes are welded both inside and outside of the housing, which spreads the load out and resists bending. The vent line is put into the cavity between the reinforcement plate and the end of the housing to keep gear oil out of it.
