    Chaka,
    Do you need help with the install or getting the diff? If you need help I'm in San Diego if that's near you let me know. If you need help finding the diff I recommend checking out your local Auto Trader/Parts Trader. I don't know where you're at so I'm not sure if you have one or not. My second suggestion is that if your main concern is getting your rig back on the road ASAP then visit Ecology or Pick Your Part, both places are cheap as dirt and odds are you'll find a complete diff, barkes and all. One thing I've noticed here with these yards is that the vultures pick at the vans less than the trucks. So if you can't find one off a truck, pick one off a van. Just make sure you've got the right measurements for the spring perches and shock mounts. This should also cure the 3" narrower track width in the rear, good luck.

    That looks similar to what I just did to my D44 except that all my ring gear teeth look like that broke one, but a little farther broken.

    Also, my diff has a ton of gouges in it form the pinion trying to mate with it!

    I know you pain!

    yeah, where in So cal are you. Im in orange county, but know a few yards in So. LA county, Do you want to just get one out of a Junker to throw in? or what. I'd be more than happy to help if i can, good Karma, it'll come back to me eventualy, Maybe if a bunch of us can get together, we can go romp it after its fixed.
