    Pulling and opening a diff isn’t as scary as it sounds. I’m going to bet you can drop the diff, open it up, reseal it, and reinstall with less time and aggravation than you’ve already spent trying to fish it out. Just my $0.02.

    Good luck!

    Serious advice here... order that front locker you've been debating now. Pull front diff and remove tool. Install locker. Done.

    All kidding aside, plastic fork trick works. I've used it when I've dropped stuff into steam pipe filters and had to get them out of bung holes. 100% success rate

    Why not just drink the shrink potion, crawl in and remove it? It's what I would do. Surprised nobody suggested this solution yet.

    This room right now is like a theoretical construction site with about 20 of us leaning on shovels giving ideas and one dude doing the work . Haha
