The years may not be 100% correct. You will need 2 yes 2 front diffs for this gear swap. You will also need a carrier shim that most of the vendors sell for a very affordable price.
You can probably find a company that builds zuki stuff in England that can or does build a "hybrid" rear housing that uses the sammy axle tubes with the kick rear axle center. The kick has a larger rear diff. If noone there can make one, go through Trailtough and buy one from him. The front you can use untouched in the sammy front end without a locker. If you want to run a locker, you have to have the kick ring and pinion gears setup in the sammy dropout, but you need a spacer and retainer kit for the crosspins in the sammy diff. You can get that through Spidertrax, they are pretty inexpensive.
So, does that mean the best choice would be to buy a front 3rd member,swap it into my existing sammi front and then buy the rear tracker or kick diff and swap the entire thing out for my existing rear sammi diff??
