Is this absurd, or are the parts interchangeable? I want to keep my 3.89 rear diff when I get an 01E so just wondering about the swapping the 01A tail housing/output right onto the back of the 01E. Any thoughts?

Wouldn't achieve what you want to even if it would work. The center diff has no effect on final drive ratios, so to achieve what you want you'd actually have to change the front ring and pinion. It'll be easier to just change the rear end.
