I'd try an auto salvage first.

Even if they don't have the truck, have them keep an eye out for you and call you if one comes in.

I'm about to do the same swap. If at all possible get the whole parts truck. Getting the axle out is easy, haven't put it in yet but from what I gather it is a direct bolt in. The other plus to getting the whole truck is that you can usually buy a truck for not much more than the axle brings, I could sell mine for $1000-1300 easy if I wanted.
