Chevy 3/4 ton running gear in jeep

I have a 1969 4x4 3/4 ton suburban complete rolling chassis with 4 spd and a rockwell model 221 transfer case, The front axle is a closed nuckle with drum brakes and I think the gear ratio is 4.56:1 the rear end has a drop out third member and a removable rear cover it also has some form of a posi I have not removed the cover to check it out yet. Anyone with info on this running gear?. I also have a 1976 3/4 ton chevy 14 bolt rear end this came out of a truck with a automatic so I suspeect that the gearing is in the 3.08 to 3.50 range. I would like to know if either of these would be suitable for modification to a older jeep. I would like to build a solid off road machine. Any comments would be helpfull. Thanks
