i know there have been countless threads on the subject but i didnt have much luck finding an answer that directly answered my question

i have a 76' 2x4

and

81' luv 2x4 with a 5 speed


my intention/hope is that the rearend/driveline, and tranny will be direct swap?

ive owned 8 of these trucks and never done this swap due to the fear tearing everything apart only to have un foreseen issues

both trucks have under 100k and run/shift great

any comments are very helpful

thanks. :)

I believe the slip yokes won't match, but if you have both driveshafts you should be able to make it work (assuming "yes" to the question that oldestisuzuist asked).
