JHF is building comp cars with toyota 8" diffs with the Hummer portals now and making them live with 42" tires full of water. I believe someone is even building one with samurai size diffs now.

A small ring gear housing isn't a bad idea at all, finding a housing that is strong enough to take the leverage from the portal end is the hard part. JHF is using a new 3.5" tube trail gear fabbed housing now.
