I have not stepped up to RCVs yet. I did not realize the RCV flange required drilling and tapping the hub for larger studs and dowel pins. Unfortunately a stock front flange won't fit the rear if the rear hub has been modified to run RCV rear shafts. 🤷‍♂️

I like the idea of having one lightweight cap that would work for all !! ;)

The other option is the carry a spare RCV drive flange.

To be honest I wasn't happy about it and did not know until I went to install then. if they would have just left the pins the same size as stock the the individual could decide whether or not to add the extra pins and holes. 🤷‍♂️

Hmm the gaskets I have have holes in different locations..

They are slightly farther out on the tan one..

The Gaskets and not made with precision, I usually have to push them on especially the fronts.
If you have a rear gasket I would mimic that.
I have rear gaskets here form two different manufacturers and there not exactly the same.

Not sure what you mean.

You can pull cross pin and spider gears without pulling the diff out. Easier on the back too with the cover, just a bit of oil to deal with.
Can’t do this on full floats. Diff Covers are welded. Semi float yes.

Leaving Pacifica on Sunday, driving out #50. Camping out along the way and arriving on Monday is the plan.
We will be heading out the 50 as well, it's longer but the wife is tired of the 15 and that part of the desert. We will be leaving Morro Bay Saturday and plan on arriving on Monday also. We will be towing and move slower, Look for us along the way.
