upinar i havent tried yet but after setting up my gears and then trying to slide in the axle shafts was when i noticed it was a smaller spline count. The only difference in the carrier i see is that the cross pin is 3/4" instead of the 7/8". It seems that the only thing stoping me is the spider gears being 28 spline. All i want to do is put my 31 splined spider gears in and weld em.

What are you up too? Are you needing a 31 spline case with spiders?
Your absolutely right. The spider gears are bits that are splined. It was late last night and I wasn't thinking.

Good catch mate.

are the carriers different or just the side gears?

RedWrangler But it might be fun to watch someone try to put it together.
