If it's an actual Pro4X then it will have lower gearing and if your X was an automatic, the Pro4X will have a heavier duty rear axle as well.

Sorry my phone was on the verge of shutting off. I should explained more, from the pro4x I was able to acquire the essentials to get back up and running. Radiator, ac condenser, radiator support bracket, etc. In addition I was also able to get leaf springs, steering wheel, 4x4 console cluster with rear locker button , would this be kind of like fog lights pre wired? Or would other considerations need to be addressed.the yard still has the full drive train with the exception of the actual spindles for rear. Would it be worth pursuing as far as wiring compatibility and mechanically?

You may want to go a little more simple on the wiring. The Pro-4X is pretty integrated. My advice Would be to download a factory service manual and get cozy with the schematics before you jump right into replacing and adding parts.

The axle shafts for that rear diff are EXPENSIVE. And on back order. I've been waiting almost a month for my driver's side and the BEST price I could find was $500. BUT, it's lower gears and a locker.

However, you're probably looking at possible water damage from sitting unsealed and other missing or damaged parts like the backing plates that were $100/ea when I had to replace mine during my swap.

Ok thats what I was afraid of, but great advice, so more beneficial to wait for titan parts later.
Most Titan swaps use the factory rear axle because there's less involved with it that way. Read through @Prime thread on the full swap. There's a good bit of fab and a lot more parts replacement with the full Titan rear axle.

Sorry for the noob question where might I find the said service manuel?
