    while you are taking those, get the axles from it too if they are still there.

    The 3/4 or 1 ton axles would be nice, but youll have to get 8 lug wheels. And I think the 1 ton's spring perches are in a dfferent location than 1/2 and 3/4 ton. Or so I read a while back. Also I would run the 6" lift, ditch the body lift n maybe do a bit of trimming to run the 37s

    Could be a Dana 44HD front. I would think since it has round headlights it would be 10.5 FF. Tho you never know whats been done to it. Could cut fenders and then throw on some flares. But, do what you like. FF 14 bolts have 6 bolts holding axle shaft in. SF would sit flush to flat surface drum, would need to open diff to remove 'em

    Not to be nit-picky, but it's 8 bolts to hold the axleshaft in on a FF.
