    Not a direct swap no.
    Plus the 3litre would be a weak link and probably just break or snap axles on the 3.5ltr.

        The diff centre, no.
        Would have to swap whole diff over and change the prop shaft flange to mate the pinion flange on the diff.
        What I was saying is the 3.5ltr power plant would kill the 3litre diff in no time.

          different size center and housing also there is only one ratio that matches up between the 2 (4.875) unless you got matching front diff. either way though the 3.5L will snap the 3L axles on demand
