    Will an ARB in the back of a 62 go right into my 60? Are 3.70 and 4.10 interchangable as well (should I have searched first!!!!?)

    you will need the same gear ratio front and rear or else 4wd will not be happy.

    The thirds will transfer but like phishincruisin says, you need the same ratio front and back.

    I don't know when they changed the flange, but I didn't have any problems on my 85 when I swapped them out.
