Default I need a new front diff housing and 4:88 gear set

So this week my front diff pinion bearing seized up and welded itself to the pinion and damaged the housing. So I'm being told that it all has to be replaced.

New Housing
New 4:88 gear set

I should be able to reuse my carrier etc. And I'll just order new bearings.

So I'm throwing this out there to see if anyone has anything...

I'm going to start looking through craigslist right now and I'm going to call Jim in the morning and see if he's got one.

Lack of oil due to diff being tilted due to drop bracket. And boom goes the bearing.

Isaac, how much do you want for that housing?

Thanks. Will do. I could probably use a hand getting that heavy diff back in place. It's a pain. I'm not sure how this time line is going to work out yet. I'm really hoping to have it all put back together and rolling before new years.

A motorcycle jack would be helpful if you go at it alone and are working from the garage floor like I was. I tried as hard as I could to get my diff lifted up and bolted in by myself. It was like lifting 100 pounds of uneven weight off the floor and up into place. Eventually I had my neighbor come over to start the threads on the bolts while I held it into place. It sucked.

Be careful. If you drop that thing on your face it could be really bad. I'm not much of a "lifter of things into place" anymore, so that's all I can contribute.
