Wow Jeep, you move fast! One of my orders will arrive today and the other is due in tomorrow, so I'll start hacking on the rattlesnake, err, uhh... the gizmo later on today. I'll see about tossing in a package of locally made "anti-venom" for 'ole shadetree as well. :-)

@Jeepwm69 @retro @shadtree @fishfiles

Shaft has to be the one to match the diff, there are differences but I can’t remember now. One thing I will say... Fit front diff first then engine then rear end, I struggled my butt off big time as I started from the rear end. Ended up taking the whole lot back apart and starting from the front!

Time consuming but if you’d like a template of the cut out I’ll make one and post it over to you, an envelope shouldn’t take to long to get to you I wouldn’t have thought.
Alternatively I can take photos with measurements. Shout up if I can help :-)

Haha.. I know, you mentioned that in my build thread. I had no luck whatsoever though, even got a helping hand from a work colleague but still no luck. I ended up pulling the swingarm and moving the motor right back and starting from the front end. I even trimmed the front crossmember (vin No plate) a little to try and gain clearance but still didn’t help.

We’re the 450’s you worked on permanent 4x4 or did they have the electro engage diff?

Ohh ok.. If I remember rightly one thing I found that was in the way was the plastic guard/shield that protects the sensor/actuator on the diff. I tried to remove it but the bolts were super tight and I feared they would shear off. At the time I felt it was a lot simpler to leave them as they were as the diff was (still is) in good working order, didn’t want to cause further issues.
I think if that plastic gaurd/shield was removed the diff may, just may, have wiggles into place.
I need to follow up on your build thread, only just caught up on this one of Fishfiles! He’s been super busy, a nice mud bike build I have to say @fishfiles
