Default Rear end noise

Figured I'd ask another question while I was on here.

Wondering if anyone knows what different option rear ends are swappable between trucks. I have a major pinion bearing noise but not the money to have someone fix it properly. I was wondering if I can just swap in a newer style rearend or maybe a less technical one. Currently have the Chrysler rearend with trac-loc. I'm not looking to weld/cut/modify my truck or new axle to make it fit. Am hoping to find a direct bolt in or close fit, which is not always possible.

If I cannot find any real options I will just start saving $.

Honestly, I don't see how replacing the rear end will be any cheaper than replacing pinion bearings. Then there's the chance the rear end you get may be on it's last leg as well. What exactly do you mean by a less technical rear end?
