I know Im very excited to try mine after this is how my stock front diff ended up last weekend. I busted two teeth off a few weeks ago on a hill climb at rush offroad, took out the broken teeth, patched the case and ran it for the time being. Well this weekend i knew Jesse was adding their 4 spider carrier to my replacement diff so I wanted to see what a stock hurt diff would take. Ended up stripping out 11 teeth total from the spiders and 2 teeth from the side gears as well, wouldnt actually turn all 4 wheels in diff lock if it wasnt lined up properly. Needly to say i couldve painted a boat with the metallic flake that was my diff fluid. Weirdly enough I hear that running in diff lock is what busts the spider gears but both my diffs have broken in normal 4wd. Last one i was full throttle in 1st gear on a short steep rock climb and when I came back down on the front wheels i heard a pop and that was it. So dont think you may not need this upgrade if you never use diff lock. 1st diff that went i wasnt even in 4wd when it broke, front axle broke and then locked up briefly on pavement and shock loaded the gears.

Nice! Who makes those three pin carriers? Would be great if spartan or lockright made a lunchbox locker that would fit in there.
