Agreed. If you want the 3/4 ton running gear, you'll have to have a 3/4 ton frame. I don't believe any of the running gear will interchange from a 1500 to a 2500. It may not be too hard to fabricate brackets to make the rear differential fit, but I don't think there's a way to get the front differential to fit.
I used parts from a 2004 GMC 1500 to repair a 2007 GMC 2500 HD about 12 years ago. I used all sheet metal other than the cab from the 1500 for the repair. Both were extended cab short beds, and all sheet metal was the same. The main difference I can remember is that the 2500 had a grill with a black spacer to fill the area between the grill and bumper to account for the taller frame. The grill was actually different, even though at first glance it looked like the spacer was a different part. The bumpers were the same.
