Currie HP 9"

Hi Guys
I have been looking at the Currie High Pinion center section for my crawler and have a few questions if anyone has used it.
What housing mods are necessary to use the 35 spline shafts?

Second is gears. Are the R&P gears something Currie has custom made or are they a factory item?

Any other info would be greatly appreciated as well as comments from anyone who has used one.
Thanks

BTW I guess I should have noted that this is for a rear end not a front.

the 3rd member is a currie unit, but the gears are just factory ford HP 8.8" gears.

Your much better off just getting a true high 9

they make a case just for the 35 spline shafts, gears are ford 8.8 reverse gears from an expedition (or something). I have built 2 different 35 spline hi 9 rears and they work great (up to 37" tire)

Technicly, True Hi-9 IS the only game in town since Currie's so called hi pinion "9 inch" center section uses 8.8" gears as mentioned previously.

There is nothing wrong with Currie "hi 9" if you use it as intended, which I believe according to them is up to 35" tire. If you really want to pound your rig and you are running high HP and large tires, then you will want the true high 9 or RC 60.

I had never heard of the "true hi 9". I didn't know if that was the name of something or a referance to a type of centersection.
