Default Differential Brace PPF Power plant frame delete?

Guys I put this together only as an example of what I did. As of right now I cannot verify its functionality but it will get put through the ringer soon. What do you think about it? Will it work?

Keep in mind that when something in your driveline decides to let go, and it will, all of that stuff is just inches from your fuel tank and genitals.

I had not really thought about that but now that you mention it, having the wife run this car may not be a bad idea.

Another thing that you may want to research is if your rubber-mounted studs were designed to be used in a compression or tension application.

I didn't think to ask. They said it was the strongest one they had rated at 450lbs. I get what you're saying though.
