Just installed on my 2021 Tremor this morning (and changed diff oil while there). Went on super easy and fit tight. Seems well made. Don’t know if this is necessary but will definitely give me some added comfort when/if I smack this in a rock.

So after seeing these photos, I have a couple of questions -
What is the bracket on top of the diff cover for and does the Tremor come with a one piece drive shaft?

Looks like a well made product. Seems to fit snuggly. Myself I would make some SS spacers, instead of all the stacked washers.

I did some quick looking for a spacer and couldn’t find one that was right size so went the washer route for now. Will replace when I find a spacer the right size (guess I could cut one).

Going to install tomorrow, but curious from torque bend and spacers comments, in instruction it looks like originally it’s supposed to be a gap and a bit of bend? What did I miss :)

I have a 21 Tremor as well. Glad to see install on this particular model. Any issues I need to be aware of prior to purchase and install? Thanks!

From what I gather, they say it should look like the picture linked above. I think we don't like that, so we feel like a spacer would solve the issue.
