Default Rear end gear ratio swap

I tried searching the threads for this specific answer, with no luck. Can the stock rear end ratio, 4.11, be swapped out with 3.31 or 3.55 gears without doing a complete housing swap? I currently have a T5 World Class 5 speed tranny behind a 302 in my 97 hardbody with 225/45R18 tires. The prior owner that began this project kept the stock Nissan Hardbody LSD rear end in place. The RPMs are around 3,200+- @ 60 mph. I'm wanting to achieve a happy medium for torque and highway/interstate cruising. Thanks!

The axle in your truck should be a H190, the 4.11 ratio in 97 came in the automatic trans trucks, the manual 2wd truck also used the H190 axle and came with 3.55 gear ratio so I think you should be able to swap the gears but not 100% sure if anything else needs to be replaced.
