Default Will a 3.55 ratio rear axle out of a 4x2 fit my 4x4??

Does anyone know if a rear axle out of a 2001 4x2 Ram fit my 2000 4x4 sport? Im not sure if 4x2 and 4x4 models all used the same rear end. Im not picky about the gear ratio, ill take whatever I can at this point.

Thanks!

and because I have 3.9 gears, will the 3.55's mess anything up if I went with a 3.55 rear end being 4x4?

You need the same diff ratio front and rear for a 4x4. If you never USE the 4x4 you might get away with it.
