im trying to figure out the differences between a v-6, and a 4cyl third. i know the v-6 third is stronger due to the thick mounting surface, and 4 pinion carrier, also a thicker ring gear. my question is that if im putting a detroit in a 4cyl third id be replacing the carrier, so how would it hold up compaired to a v-6 third. what would the weaknesses be with this setup. i dont do hard core rock crawling, mostly snow, mud and trails. any info would be appreciated, cause finding a v-6 third up here is proving to be hard to find and the ones ive found were expensive.
