    I'm almost positive the carrier bearings are bigger. I've got both taken apart at home, everything in the cruiser 3rd looks the same as minitruck, but it's all slightly bigger. I tried to swap a crosspin and spiders a few years back, and the minitruck stuff is just a hair smaller.

    They are different-the carrier bearings in the cruiser are larger. On 91-97 80series, the carrier bearings are the same as V6 mini-trucks.
