Hey JDub, you don't have to cut the lip off, just build your own lid. Sounds like you weld, so just use a donor drum. I have done two. They both have good fits. The tall one has round bar welded to the cut off donor lid then flat bar welded around it for a lip. The short one was the second one I did for my UDG and I used a donor lid, cut the center out and welded it to the 6" top from a donor drum. So it is just like a normal lid in the way it fits on the UDG. It also works on the UDS of course.
