So now that the sedamn has a very low range, the weak link is the rear axles/diff. Any thoughts/comments on possibly taking a toyota 3.9 IFS front diff and axles with hubs and mating all that crap to the subaru components? Or what about stronger subaru components?

I searched and didn't find much.

What do you think they use?

My Hatch is running 4.11 front and rear with 30in tires.
I have broken some rear axles but no stubs yet.
If you dont have alot of angle to the axles, it shouldnt be much of a problem.

With my stock gears and 31" tires and welded rear diff, the Beast eats stubs like candy if I goose it at the wrong time. I have never broken a rear axles, it was always the stubs that go. Wheelspin is what makes them break, with your low gearing you should be able to keep that under control. I would wheel it with the stock stuff first, and if it cant handle it then maybe try an R180 rear diff or something. Or solid axle...

Nissan / datsun rear diff, same as Nissan 720 4x4 pickup front diff, bolts right up no mods, would need to make own bearing carriors
