Anything special a V6 guy needs to know before doing this? Putting in a 3.90 from a 2.7 L
Nope nothing special. Pretty straight forward if your just swapping carriers. No need to touch axles or hubs, just pry axles out as you drop the diff down.
How long does it take?
Depends on how skilled or experienced the person doing it is and if you have access to a lift. If not your gonna need some floor jacks and stands. Make sure you have all the right tools as well. The v6 carriers has a fin on the bottom and makes using a regular jack difficult. And make sure you have a good pry bar to pop the axles out.
So we use all these same tools
I'm looking at doing this now and found some updated info. The PN 4593854AD is no longer avail per the Dealership. They came up with 459354AH which I promptly googled and found at HHP for $1401 which is far cheaper than the $2225 the stealership wants.
For a 2010 SRT8, it is my understanding that I can upgrade from 3.06 to 3.73 more easily by simply swapping out the entire pumpkin... true? If so, what other parts are involved? I was looking at a dealership doing this only to get a warranty out it. I still may wind up doing it in my garage though if the dealership gets stupid on labor.

Quick question. How much of a gap is there between the Pumpkin and the oem axles on the Getrag? Im in the middle of a swap and have bout an 1/8" on each side is that normal?

Thanks to everyone that had input to this mod. The list of all the tools that are needed to get the job made it so much easy to get through. For those guys that have a pre-09 hemi i recommend that you head to the dealership when you order your diff so that you can get the bolt that is like 8 ft tall to mount the front of the diff. I love this mod and i am not looking forward to see how often i am going to buy new tires.
