i dont like this style of truss b/c u only have about 5 inches of weld holding it to the tubes on each side.....if you were to tie it into the diff cover bolts and/or run a brace to some of the housing webbing and bolting it in i would call it good......we started out building that style of truss and have left that idea moving onto a tnt customs similar truss design....my truss has approximately 40 inches of weld tieing it not only to the housing but to the tubes, coil buckets, and it bolts to 6 diff cover bolts

There is more than 5 inches of weld on the housing. There is also a center brace that isn't shown. And it ties into the diff cover. This is the finished product.
