So I need to use the differential side of the NAPA for its splines, and the rest can be from a Toyota axle. Has anyone had luck mixing these?

Just wondering if anyone has tried. I might take them apart and play with it next week.

Like mentioned , info input needed having a little trouble understanding what your question is, but "mixing" of parts shouldn't be an issue seeing how 3rd party parts manufacturers make them to OEM specs for compatability...

Some do and some don't. Part of the issue he is having now is different length splines between OEM and aftermarket. Unfortunately it is the aftermarket that better fits his set up.
I believe he is having the old issue with a front full time locker and CV fitment where the OEM CV will not go far enough into the diff for the snap ring to seat.
Also some aftermarket "new" shafts will not accept OEM boots.

We don't even know if he is talking front or rear axles, and he ain't saying, so I'm not gonna give it a thought.

This is precisely the issue. I'll mess with it next week and see if I can put together a trail spare.
