Kick/Track carrier in a IFS front housing?!?!

Anybody out there know of, or heard of anybody that has taken a rear Kick carrier and made a housing similar to the Calmini "Anvil' housing for the front of a Kick IFS? I have spoken with Spidertraks about their hybrid center section that they have that accepts the above but it is to 'w i d e' to get in the front of a kick IFS.
Simply put I'm looking to put a rear carrier(larger/stronger) into an Anvil type housing in the front of a Kick with.....IFS!

Do yourself a favor, and get a front carrier from a Grand Vitara with a manual transmission - they're steel, and a direct replacement for the aluminum Sidekick front carrier.

Oh, but you have to plug the "air hose" port (GV locks the hubs in with an air actuator).

Here's the GV carrier in my Anvil:

EDIT - the red plug is stuck in the carrier with blue RTV. The photo is rotated...
