Here is my last word on the motor Marn. I tend to trust the jeep crowd more then I ever would the majority of Chevy enthusiasts. I would check the decks to see if they are even. If he has receipts and nothing seems fishy I would probably do it. You could even check for some assembly lube just to check if it hasn't been run since the rebuild. If he's upfront with everything I don't see any reason to not trust him and his documentation.

If you're interested, don't speak up now but keep it in mind and I'll post more info when I have a more for sure type date. It's a pretty legit cover, nodular iron and it looks like the old school BFG MT basically. Oh, the vehicle needs to be lifted also. Almost forgot that requirement. Want it to be actually visible from the rear basically. I can probably get you a matching one for the front to install on your own time as well, not promising but it's likely...
I dunno what nodular iron means.. Does that mean it will be strong like the solid, ARB and other brands or is it more for show? Also will they have easy access fill and drain plugs inclusive of a fluid level? (BTW, I am following directions by not expressing interest, I am just asking clarifying questions for when I can express interest :-) )

I felt half of the prototype and I will say that puppy will be stout if they are using the same metal. If you drove that thing off a cliff and it caught on fire I think the diff covers would still be good.

while i'm sitting here "working" on a few landscape designs while smoking a cigar and drinking in my back yard, i am also trying to figure out what the hell the displacement of Dani's nova motor is.

I know the following:

-It was a 307 originally.
-It's bigger than a 327 (she was specifically able to make fun of Desi's 327 because hers was slightly bigger)
-It's bored and stroked (duh).
-its not a 400 crank, as the balancer is not externally balanced.

what could it be?

307 with 350 crank and 400 rods bored .030 over will put it somewhere around a 333. Somewhat rare setup, but seems to make sense and would be made from common/readily avaiable parts?

After looking at a couple of forums, there are quite a few aftermarket companies offering internally balanced 400 cranks. Factory, they were all externally balanced. If it has an aftermarket crank, it could very well be internally balanced.

But but but...you said! Dammit! Now I will never find out without looking at casting numbers. A 400 crank would have to be turned down though yes?

All else I know is that this motor cost like 2500 bucks

You would have to do some research but the factory 400 also had a counter balance on the flex plate. Not sure if it would need one if it was internally balanced.

A factory crank would have to be turned down at the mains. However, just as with the aftermarket internally balanced cranks, there are companies that made 400 cranks that were bolt in ready.
