Lesson - in diffs

Think I roasted my front carrier in my WJ. I'm looking for a "how to" guide on building a differential. I'm pretty mechanically inclined, however, I've never set a ring and pinion. Can anyone recommend a website or book or tutorial on how to do so? Thanks in advance!

How do you 'roast a carrier'?

did you destroy the ring and pinion? Did you destroy your spider gears? If you need to replace the spiders or any clutch packs in a limited slip, you don't need to do any real setup work, just take the ring and carrier out, save your shims for each side, do whatever you need to the carrier, then put it back the way it came out.
