My 10 bolt is 4 channel and i am thinking about purchasing a 3 channel 12 bolt is it possible to switch the 12 bolt over? If so what would i need to do? Thanks for your time, Mike.

You're going to need the correct brake mounts for the abs sensors and you'll need to install the abs reluctor rings on the axles. Call strange they probably sell the required parts and seals. Everything needs to come off the axles to install the abs rings. See the pictures in this link:
Also check out the axle installation instructions in the pdf file in the first post of this thread:

Glad someone is getting some use out of all my pics :P
Yep he is right, you'll need to pull all the crap off the axles and change all your stuff over (backing plates, reluctors). Then you will need a plug for the housing sensor hole or just leave the old sensor there.

Funny side story, I had an extra ten bolt housing (empty) sitting behind my shop, and another sitting in the shop that I was gonna put some 4.10s in for a buddy. I paid a guy and his two grandsons to come do some finish work on a new concrete slab. After the old man had been there awhile he looked at me (I had cranked the car up for the grandsons to hear a little while before) and he said "yall sure do bust a lot of rear ends around here". I couldn't help but chuckle and I just said "yep, we sure do". The point of the story is most of the guys with a lot of knowledge live and breathe this stuff everyday, and its not hard to see if you ever see their garage ;)
if you don't want to spend $1500 on a 12 bolt
I am selling a 4.10 10 bolt rearend.
