this is a rear axle right?
what was the front axle on the ford?

what years and models are the best for using?
can they be narrowed?

are any of you running them?

I think the fronts on ford trucks were Dana 44s and 50s. Even the big F350. They had a 8.8" and 9" rears.

This site makes 9s for the fronts:

So it can be done. How difficult, I don't know. I don't see any prices on that site so I can imagine it's out of control.

Good luck.

Me too. I just kinda chuckled and was nice and didn't mention that my 30 yr old cruiser (had 2 yr old TJ) didn't need an axle upgrade to safely run the same tires he was. :D
