I am not positive, but I believe the drive shafts are different. It has been awhile, but the Yokes may be a little larger on the 3/4 ton, A parts house could tell you if it takes the same U joints. If the U joints are the same, then it is a done deal. Good luck, just make sure your gear ratio is the same or you will be snaping axles on dry pavement..
