But after all that, geez, I had not paid attention to your real question, to use the axle/brakes from a 2006 and put them on your 2001. The 2001 has a 3:21 final. The 2006 could be either 3:73 or 4:10. The U-Bolts between '01 and '06 are also different.The conversion is the best way to go, all that stuff on top if you really want disc brakes. THAT is why in the image it shows the old axle, and the bottom line in answer to your real question is no, it wont swap Click the image for a nice full screen, and how the old parking brake cable is used
