f250 4x4 I beam to solid axle???

The search feature isn't working for me, but I need to know if there are kits to swapping out the ttb 4x4 front end out from under my grandpa's f250 for a solid axle? most likely a dana 60? what is the rear end? Or is there any guides online to doing it? looking for more lift so the i beams wont cut it.

i'm assuming a dana 60 from a f350 of similar year will work? what about driveshafts and steering? I would like a lot of lift since this truck will not be hauling a boat anymore, maybe 10-12 inches? is that possible with the stock leaf spring mounts and a dana 60?

you solid axle will bolt up to the leafs on your ttb, pull old shit out, put new shit in. Lift depends on the spring and hangers you put in. Lower hangers = more lift, taller spring = more lift, take Advil for any headache's, Midol for any cramps as you may hurt yourself while trying to understand what I've just said

Get yourself a Sky manufacturing shackle reversal kit (should be like 5")...then some 6" F-350 lift springs.

Then get crossover steering and make a trac bar (the factory type sucks).
