    My brother works at a salvage yard now. He seen a 74 K20. Well, its says K20. It has 8-lug full floating rears. Is this one ton? I am gonna go up there with an axle ID chart this weekend.

    It is a 3/4 ton.
    A 1 ton would be a K30. It will have a 14FF in the rear and a D44 up front.

    my truck's not dirty, it's earth tone paint

    I was just saying it could have been a fender from a 3/4. That 14 bolt will bolt into my K5 right? So that D44 is 8-lug. Is that worth switching my 10-bolt for?

    It would be worth the swap for the 8 lug outers to match the 14FF, but you rreally wouldn't be increasing strength much...

    If you are hoping for a D60, they didn't start in the 1 tons until around '77..
