Default Dumb dually question, sorry

Hey guys, I wanted to see if any of you could answer a quick question. I want to convert my 3/4 ton dodge ram to a dually, I originally was planning on getting the dually conversion kit and a dually bed. I still plan on getting the dually bed but wanted to know if A 1 ton dually rear end off a 2nd gen dually would bolt right in. Any help will be appreciated. Thx guys.

There would be a little bit of fabrication to make it fit, but the chassis dimensions should be the same. I would have it welded in place, not just bolted. I would think you'd just need to pick up a Dana60 or Dana80 and get a set of dually hubs machined up and you'd be set. You shouldn't need to swap out the entire back end to do this conversion unless you particularly want the heavier rear suspension.
