I've got the 424, The thing is, My differential is sorta messing up, And i have access to some wrecked bikes, So that's why i was wondering if it would fit the 99' 450. the guy has a crashed out 04 rubicon 500, I'd like to know if it would work with no problems, Will it have the same ratio and stuff?

it has been done but will require alot of work. the frame will have to be cut out some to accept the new style diff. a switch will have to be run. you may also have to cut and weld up a front driveshalf for it, it will have to be shortened. What is wrong with the one you have, is it messed up so bad that it want take a rebuild?
