So, the number of bolts (i.e. 10 bolt) refers to the number of bolts attaching the ring gear to the carrier. Is that correct?

Yes. It is in fact not the bolt count for the cover.

How did that axle turn out?

I've seen welding of the tubes before on YouTube but i thought it was not possible to weld cast iron. How are powwow doing it?

Current rear had some very poorly installed 3.73s and is whining like crazy and I don't trust it.

Part of it is preheating the cast. It's solid so the welding itself will not create the needed heat to properly penetrate, leading to a weak weld/blowing through the axle tube trying to create the heat needed without preheating.

Yeah I've heard something about that before. Using a torch with the pre heating tip?
