update: ok, just as I figured, the concept of putting a ele front diff In a manual full front drive system ?..AINT FREAKING GONNA WORK !. I don't know how everyone else was able to just cut a tad out of the frame, and the front diff drop right in, and bolt up ?, but no freaking way this is gonna work on this '99 trx450s ?..least not without doing some big time hacking away at the frame supports ??!. sorry outlaws, but as i've been saying all along, YOU JUST CAN'T TOSS PARTS AT SOMETHING, AND THINK ITS A EASY THING TO DO !. sooo, this front idea project just got busted big time !!. after looking at this for a few ?, there is no way this is going to work without doing some big time cutting away at the frame supports !. have a look at the pics, at each spot I focused on where are 3 area's are that bolt this to the frame, in each place, from what I see, I need about 1 inch drop or more in all 3 places to even get the bolt holes on the diff to line up with the mounting holes on the frame. and when you try this, as you can see, the front end at the pinion cases will sure enough hit the side support, and the only way to keep that from hitting it ?, is whack the heck out of it to clear. nope, not cutting any more of this frame. in the last pic, you can see how close I am to this support ?, in order to get the front diff to make all bolt holes, drop down far enough to be level with the front output drive shaft ?, i'd have to cut the crap outta that frame support, AND I'M NOT DOING THIS !. sorry outlaws, but this front diff plan just got busted big time !! :-(.
