Ford 9" mixed with Rockwell???

A long time ago I thought i saw someone taking a 9" housing and making like a mini rockwell top loader out of it? Modifying a third member and making a 9" housing into a top loader??

Anyone remember seeing this? Could have sworn someone tried or did this?

I think some monster trucks used to use axles that had the driveshaft come in vertically.

Yup, 80's monster trucks. They used a dumptruck type axle that was a normal front loader, rotated the pinion up vertically, then ran a 1/2 ton or so diff on top of that. Driveshaft turned the 1/2 ton diff (welded), one of the axle ends of the 1/2 ton diff connected to the pinion of the big axle. More gear reduction, less driveshaft angle. Way primitive, heavy, and took up a lot of verticle room, but none of that matters if the truck is 15' tall.

What i ment was, someone made a third member that fit into a 9" housing that was like a rockwell with a ring/pinion and bull gear setup but dropped into a 9" housing rotated 90? not as huge as the old setups or rockwells but just a smaller rockwell out of a 9" housing??
Just curious if it was just a model made or actually someone machined one?
