5.12 tracker gears in 3.73 sami case w/locker

I have an 87 samurai with stock 3.73 gears and I just picked up a lockrite for the rear. I also have 5.12 gears from a tracker that I will install if I can.... Can I use the steel 3rd member from the samurai and the lockrite for that carrier (w/3.73 from the factor) with the 5.12 gears? Essentially, will the 5.12 gears bolt in place of my 3.73s? If not, what mods will be necessary/can it be reasonably done?
Thanks,
Brian

I've tried to search but can't seem to find any info on this particular swap. Any new info or even link to previous threads would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Brian

To install the FRONT(only) tracker or sidekick R&P's in the front and rear Samurai housing/carrier its best to use either the ring gear shim and carrier pin can, as sold by http://www.northcoastoffroad.com/
or the modified sidegear(I think thats what it looks like) and retainer can sold by http://www.trailtough.com/

When I swapped in my sidekick gears, I used the breeze components from NCO

I did it and came up with more than 25 threads. Go to the search page and type- 5.12 gears and pick 1 year or newer. You'll be set. Have fun. Brent
