As for the bulletproof, you can just get the ring and pinion gear. You can then use all the same cups, drive dogbones, and axles.

But if you get them off ebay you get a better value, as you get the HD diff shafts and casings for the same price as a BP diff without all that from a store. Just get the ebay ones, and take em apart and install your existing diff cups.

Isn't it possible just to swap out the ones that come with the diffs (HD) with the ones he already has? I don't see any issues with that....??
