Default Shot Rear end

My rear end in my 98 is shot beyond measure, my first reaction is to get is rebuild and swap the stock 3.55 gears to 4.11's. My question is thus, could i take a rear end off a 2nd gen v6 dodge and use that instead of me dropping $1000 on a rebuild? Wouldnt the v6 rear end have higher gears in it?

Id cross reference it with the Dealership to be safe.. and they will be able to tell you If the V6 would work with your V8... If you could get the Vin Number off the V6 and give it to the dealer and they can Look it up...
Smile even if its a little creepy

Gen1dak will become famous soon enough

It'll work. Won't necessarily have higher gears.
