No, they are not, according to the local truck clutch and gear shop the gears are different. Some people have flipped a front engined (tractor) rear ends and used them successfully, after changing all of the mounts, vents, fill hole, and brakes, but there is a difference in the gears and they may not oil properly. If I was just planning on using my bus for short trips to the lake and such, I might try it, but I plan on doing some serious long distance traveling with my bus, and don't want to take a chance of a rear end failure while on the road.
