Shipping a rear end?

Any ideas how I ship this rear diff to ISC for upgrade to 4.88s? I'm clueless when it comes to shipping big stuff.

Get a pallet, some strapping, and few short pieces of 2x4 for support. It would help if you had access to a business that did regular shipping.

Paul,
Mike did my 5.12 last year before the runoffs and I shipped it to him in a Home Depot plastick tool box. Just remove the cover and it fits fine. Don't forget lots of dence packing and something to absorb the oil that will leak. I also put a piece of 1/2 plywood inside under the big end to spread the load if it got dropped. It came back with some battle scars and a crack or two but the contents were in good shape. Good luck.
