So ive got a 2004 dodge dakota with a (going) bad differential. Im wanting to just replacethe whole rear end but finding damn near anything for a 2004 dakota has proven quite hard. So my question is: is it possible that a ram 1500 rear end would match up with my dakota and which years would. Also, does a 2005 dakota rear end match up with a 2004. I know alot changed between those two years but i dont knlw if the drivetrain had or not.
