If you decide to buy your parts at Rock Auto, do a web search for Rock Auto promotional codes and you'll probably be able to find one that works and will save you at least 5%.

Remove one axle, leave the diff unwelded, and freeze the unused side of the diff gears. That'll give a 2:1 reduction at the axle that still drives.

An old axle trans-side stub with a plate welded to it could work perfectly to stop the other side of the diff from spinning, too.
