    It will work yes with a little work, you'll need a Ford Tcase too.

    IF you have a 78-79 Ford 60, it will bolt in for the most part. Sometimes Ford used 1310-1350s on the front. Shocks, steering, etc will need to be checked. And of course the t-case. Angles will be better do to the high pinion.

    imo you should go with a 241 out of a 88-98 chevy if you get that axle

    Another t-case option is to use a doubler and clock it to the drivers side.

    or a case from an 88+ IFS truck. could make things VERY easy if you already have a 208 or a 241 in your truck.
