Default Is your tunnel brace mounted TA holding up well ?

Thought I would post up in here since this is where all the aftermarket diffs get posted. Has the factory tunnel brace mounts held up ok for you with an aftermarket TA?

You have a trans mount location for long TA's. You have a tunnel mount location for short TA's . The oem tunnel mount was originally designed for a factory frame cross brace. You unbolt the cross brace and use the existing 4 holes to mount a TA brace. But some have reported that area is weak since it was not originally designed for a TA load and the factory welds have failed. I used that style mount for 2 years without any problems. Was curious if anyone else had failures or success.

Gotcha, yeah mine is holding up good, and all the stock suspension (location) guys running pretty fast (faster then me) are using that location as well. I wouldnt worry about it.

Could have been a junky factory weld. Seems rare.

Mines holding up, but I did also weld in the seams around them for added rigidity
