This is the truss I am thinking about fabricating for my Model 20 rear axle (see attachment). It already
has an air locker, full floaters and disc brakes. There's no turning back now, I've already got too much
invested.

The green is flat stock. Plate gussets would be used between the axle and the outer truss members.
The vertical pieces (shown in detail view) would weld each side of the gusset and their ends would taper
to match the width of the outer truss members.

What do you think?

Actually, there isn't any "empty" space, it is filled with a full gusset between the upper and lower truss
flanges and the axle. I drew this up at lunch and could have been clearer. I had another that colored in
the spaces to show the gusset, but I couldn't get it to convert to a raster file correctly.
