The front swaps are fairly easy. Everything lines up just fine. Unfortunately other than the slightly larger ring gear and pinion, full floating hubs with 4 heavier bolts instead of three holding it, only the u-joints and yokes are different on the actual shafts than the D44 (in the stock 94+ Dodge Ram 3/4 or 1 ton trucks). The axle shafts are the same diameter with the same weak points and spline count.

when you do the swap, make sure to save all the steering parts off your donor truck. Im not sure on the drive shaft length, but i wanna say your old one will not work, 3/4tons run a larger u-joint, it might work if not its not hard to get a custom lenght drive shaft and there not expensive.
