Hi,Unfortunately this front differential assembly will not fit the vehicle due to differences in the mounting and axle layout.Your only option is going to be another Challenger, Nativa, Montero Sport, Pajero Sport, or L200 front diff (of course of the appropriate year and gearing).The actual ring and pinion for this front diff will exchange with certain Shogun/Pajero/Montero front diffs from around 2001-2002, however it is only the ring and pinion that fit, and only certain years/trim levels. We would want donor and recipient VINs to verify fitment if you wanted to just tear down and swap the ring/pinion. I would strongly urge holding out for the right diff though rather than just doing a ring/pinion since you had a catastrophic failure in there, it would be best to replace the unit.
You're welcome, good luck!
