    They may have gone from U-bolts to straps to retain the u-joint, but other than that, there shouldn't be any difference, since I believe all 12 bolt truck axle pinions interchange. U-joint SIZE may have changed too, but not sure about that one.

    Yes, there were two different yokes on the 12 bolts. One is smaller and one is larger. The 10 bolt rear yokes off of blazers are the same as the Large 12 bolt yoke and interchange....
