Changing to a PowerLok carrier?

So I just picked up a Dana 44 PowerLok to put in my rear end and have some questions about doing it.

What I currently have is an open rear end with 3.92 gears. The PowerLok carrier is for 3.92 and down gears.

So if the Powerlok looks to be in good shape, can I just move the 3.92 ring gear over to the powerlok and install it? Or do I need to go through the setup and all that?
