i used the 3 mounting bolts and a 3.5 inch u bolt to hold in place. seems to be solid.

How are you going to get the drive shaft around the oil pan?

I have seen this done on an aussi runner. the guy used the rear diff out of a MK3 supra. his plan was to make the angles of the CV's more reliable. He did achieve his goal and found out he could run more travel then stock as a plus.

x2. You will have a very low hanging diff here. Unless you are planning to run a rear mounted engine.

the only way I see to clear the oil pan with the driveshaft is a 4" bracket lift, but not even sure it would clear then either. Wasn't there a thread showing a centered diff here not too long ago? If I remember right that truck had the 4" bracket lift too.

my 4 runner does have a 4 inch bracket lift but it has a 3 inch motor drop.

ok then I don't see how your gonna clear the oil pan with the driveshaft if your motor has been dropped.

I get it.......and like what you are doing! A great solution to maximize travel for the Blazeland LT. Do you also use the front pinned mount connection point on the aluminum cover. Do you have a picture of that?

i ajusted the third so the pinion is up some and is close to the oil pan. there is more room than it looks.

by the looks of that one photo where you show the clearance of the diff to oil pan, if you did not have the bracket lift and engine drop (equaling effectively a 1" bracket lift) you would not clear.

Just throwing that out there in case someone tries this on a truck that doesn't have the bracket lift. Looks good though, I admire the creativeness.

when i built my mount i did not relize that the pinion was offset so my mount ended up being off set as well. I have had way worse drive line angels on my straight axle truck at full drop on pasiger side. so drive line should be fine.

Is that also a SFA oil pan? I'm pretty sure (on my diesel anyway) that the pan is sort of clearanced around the front diff. Of course a SFA pan probably wouldn't be.
