No self-respecting ATV would have both a differential and a solid axle. It would either be solid and without a diff, or be independent suspension with CV axles.

Too narrow, besides.

That thing has a diff specifically designed for a chain input, rather than a drive shaft at 90*. You might see such a thing on a trike conversion axle, but those things aren't cheap/mass produced around here.

You could probably rob one from a tuk-tuk or the like, but we don't have those. Annoying regulations.
