I may call around to wrecking yards for an xl7 diff, or just wait for it to blow.
What about using a sidekick rear axle as a donor for a front housing?
The sidekick rear is a 9" ring gear I belive but for some reason I recall 5hat tou need a 3" lift to clear it..... but that doesnt really make sence. I know calimini says you need a lift to clear the anvil center. Also you dont have an extra set of 5.13 gears to make one out of a rear from what I know of your junk pile
