This article from our home page may help some. https://www2.zukiworld.com/feature_sidekickdrivetrainimprovements/ Since that article was originally written, other ways to do the swap have been developed. What you can do is drop your ring, carrier, & pinion from the aluminum 3rd member into the steel one vs. using the Samurai third. Use your axles, locker if you got it. This is all a bolt on situation (you need to get the 'snout' mount for the donor too).The gears ratios (if you choose to buy a junk yard 3rd) can be a bit more of a sticky situation as the v6 models may have different ratios vs. 4 cylinder and earlier gen depending on year. Check the junk yard's interchange... Also take a peak at our spec sheets available from the home page.Good luck, -Eric
