    Yes, 6 lug 3/4 aren't really that rare.

    Do you mean how much work is it to swap a solid front axle under a 2WD truck? Just buy a 4WD, its not like old Chevy's are expensive.

    Actually, 67-70 1/2 ton 2WD trucks were all 6 lug, 67-70 3/4 ton 2WD trucks came either 6 or 8 lug. These were all 4 wheel drum brake though. Starting in 1971 GM used 5 lug on the 1/2 ton with disc brakes and 8 lug on the 3/4 ton trucks with disc brakes.
