    I learned on Toyota thirds... They are pretty easy. Now, I might not build a million mile diff, but the do fine in a crawler. I have not looked, but I bet there is a YouTube video that gives you a bunch of info. Get the crush sleeve eliminators. Get your specs right and post the pattern up and you should be gtg

    I can't remember, is this a carrier replacement scenario? Or is it like the lunchbox deals where you fit it inside the carrier in place of the spider gears?
    If its the latter, it really is not that hard, and there's no disruption of the ring gear.
