gm has a 825,1/2 ton ifs and a 925 IFS,3/4 ton,You should be able to change the ratio in the one you have or find one with the correct ratio,It should be a bolt in deal.

I am needing to know if there is an IFS 3/4 ton 6 lug to put in. How much do I need to change and how much a pain in the arse it would be.

Thanks for the help.
6 lug trucks never came with the 9.25" front end. heavy halfs had 3/4 ton rear ends with 6 lug, 8.25 front and half ton transmissions while light duty 3/4 tons had the same thing, except with the 3/4 ton transmission, still a 6 lug with 8.25 front.

swapping to the front end you want requires alot more then its worth. you would have to fab new mounts for the diff, and change your knuckles to accept the 3/4 ton unit bearings, which in turn requires the matching control arms. basically the only thing you can keep it going to be your upper control arms and your torsion bars, everything else is different. .

It would make more sense to just do a solid axle swap. If you wanted to settle for a dana 44, they are easier to find in driver side drop and you can re use your transfer case, steering box, ect. all you have to do is hang leaf springs and fab a simple crossover steering setup. on junkyard springs and .120 wall dom for the steering you could do a job like this for under 1000 bucks. to do the ifs conversion you would end up spending a little more i would imagine.
