I'm not sure if the extra little stake "stiffener" that resides under the 1 ton rear fender is present on a 3/4 ton. I believe this is a 1 ton only thing. The 1/2ton trucks did not have that extra or the little tiny one tucked under the top tubing rail. They (1/2's) only had the front and rear stake pockets.
1tons had "5"- (4 actual holes in top bent angle of bed side)- the front stake, 2nd front, little one under tube rail, medium one under fender that only served as a stiffener and the rear stake.
If anybody knows more about 3/4s, I’d like to know, too.
