    Is it possible to swap the front differentials in the IFS trucks? The reason I ask is I have 1/2 ton and the only Locker I can find is for the 3/4 or 1 ton trucks. Thanks in advance for the information /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    I was told that the frame mounts are different for the larger centersection on tons.All the front suspension parts mount differently and won't change over.Don't know that for fact,but the person telling me was driving a Jeep built on 1ton GM front half,rear frame and suspension was custom. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Thats why they sell different lifts for the light and heavy duty trucks.

    My buddy tried to regear his front on his 1991 Chevy 1/2ton and he couldn't even do that. He got it out and looked at ti and after hours and hours couldn't figure out how to get the gears out.
