I'm in the middle of a diff swap and I noticed the following difference (see pictures at bottom)


It is the small structure that is sandwiched between the bottom of the diff and the PPF with the 2 long bolts running through it.  What I"m swapping out  (3.9) has this piece bolted to the housing with 2 bolts.  The diff I'm swapping in (4.3) has only 1  bolt.  I'm assuming it's not a problem, but can anyone confirm?
