    Those were kind of oddballs. Something like they only came in the SRW crew cabs. Wes probabally knows for sure. But, I would guess you would run into the same snags as you would with a FF14B from a 1 ton.

    <font color=blue>If they are before 73, than the front axle has the smaller 260-X steering u-joints (same as in dana 30s) and smaller axletubes. You will also need to move the spring pads and shock mounts on the rear.

    Can you give us more details on this? I take it you are talking about the lockouts.... If so, those are the external style and are considered weaker. Not sure what year they stopped those...
