Differential case spreader and a carrier bearing puller, need to borrow them please?

Does anyone have a differential case spreader and/or carrier bearing puller I can borrow? My rear Rubi locker has an air leak and not having those tools is standing in the way of fixing it.

I struck out after calling Autozone Pep Boys, Autozone, NAPA, and O'Reilly's to try to borrow or rent them. They don't have either of those tools in their tool loan program. What would almost be funny if it wasn't so sad at the same time is not a single person I spoke to at those stores had a clue what those tools were.

Please PM me if you have either I can borrow. Thanks!

I wish I had one. Let us know if you find anything.

There is a guy trying to sell one that's been posted on craigslist off and on for months. He wants way too much for it but maybe he would rent it.

If you can't make anything work try pro gear in kearney mesa. Good guys and fair prices.

Will do, thanks Jeff. I even put an ad on Craigslist in the Tools For Sale area offering to rent those tools.

Jerry, Taylor and I made one for his HPD30. They are very easy to make out of 2" x 2" x .188w HREW tube, some 7/8" thickwall tube and a couple gr8 bolts.

I asked around at a couple 4wd shops if I could borrow theirs & was politely declined by all of them.
