Anyone know what is involved to R&R the differential? I am only talking about removing the entire unit and putting another one in, not opening the case and changing gears inside. Does the rear subframe have to come off?

You have to drop the rear subframe, the trans, the torque tube, exhaust, split the rear suspension...

Maybe more, not sure.

Drop the middle exhaust section, the rear subframe, the tunnel brace, and then you can drop the drivetrain far enough to pull off the rear diff.

Not really that hard. I've done it a time or two.
