    Just thought of one more thing you'll need for the Gen 5 axles - the bolts. You'll need Mopar part number 06510757AA - M10x1.25x54mm bolts. Looks like they come in pairs - you'll need 3 pairs for each axle (12 total bolts for both).

    I think we are going to use the Gen5 diff, Gen4 stubs and my existing Gen3 axles. Seems like a Johnny Cash song, but whatever. I found that the SRT #53010743AH finned differential is actually less money than the diff without fins. Any reason behind this? Also, are we sure that all Gen5 diffs are 3.55 gears? Thanks for the great info!

    If it is less money, it is probably just a random market fluctuation...besides the finned rear cover, there are no other differences, so go with whatever is cheaper.

    And yes, all Gen 5 diffs come with 3.55s.

    That should do it.

    I ran into my first snag in the project. The rear differential #53010704AH is discontinued and replaced with AI and AK. Online pricing for the AH is $2035, but that part is discontinued and replaced by the AI and AK. The AK is $3045 + shipping. Do any of you fine folks have a better source for these parts than the typical Mopar Parts stores that come up from Google? This project is starting to go from a $3000 project to a $5000 project before I even touch a wrench.

    I was afraid of that...as inventories get used up, the prices are going to keep going up. It was nice while it lasted I guess. When I bought mine, it was toward the end of Viper production, and they wanted to get rid of their surplus quickly.

    Aside from the 3.55s, were you also after the stronger Gen 4/5 differential (Visco Lok)? I guess at this point you just have to weigh piecing it together + labor as opposed to buying the unit as a one piece bolt in. Gear installs are pretty pricey, mainly because they require a fair amount of labor to get it right (and you'll be hoping they do).

    The R&R of the entire unit is a bit cumbersome, but easily done by even your average shade tree mechanic. I won't touch a gear install though, mostly because it requires one-off tools that are useful for pretty much nothing else.

    I was hoping to swap out the entire unit, and keeping my stock differential "just in case" (ie, collecting dust forever). As for install, there is a place 3 hours from me called Havik Performance, not sure if he's known on these forums or not. Apparently he knows which end of a Viper is up. I was going to have him do the swap and check my car from tonsils to toenails to make sure it's sea-worthy.

    I'm confused on parts. Can you please tell me the difference between a 68027872AC - Right stub axel
    392e3218a710979f792ff452c13e1977.JPG

    And a 8203472AB - Right Intermediate shaft
    a2f81917d17ed50b9a88d9ba63341221.JPG

    I'm no mechanic, and I'm sure you realized that by now. Is the shaft pictured on top the same as the part below it, but that black collar goes onto that shaft? If so, does the black collar just tap onto the splines of that shaft?
