A K30 (1-Ton 4x4) will have for sure a 14 bolt fully floating rear axle in the rear. In the front will be a kingpin style open knuckle Dana 60.

Just to add, the D60 will have 3 U bolts holding the front leaves instead of 4. Or you could say that on the pass side there will be one Ubolt. One side of the pass-side has the bolts running right into the center section and does not use the U bolt there. If your looking at the diff cover from the front, just below and to the right there should be a D60F marked into the housing, not the cover, right in the webbing.
If it turns out that it is a D60/14Bff combo, snag it. If you don't want to use it, you can always sell it for a good price. [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] I would get it and use it though, if your planning on running big tires and doing some wheeling.
