What about using the rear differential from a honda CRV awd or Ford Escape\Mazda Tribute? They look light weight and tough enough for a trike. Just a thought Jay

Not a triker here but I see no reason why those wont work . Just look to see if it can be cut down the width you need .

I know they are using rear axles from, S10 and Ranger pickups, mustangs and any other smaller vehicle. Adapting them to work as a trike is the same form all of them.
