stripped chassis f350?

i bought a f350 for parts and i think it is a stripped chassis model because the rear dually is 68" wide. so i have an f250 2wd and want to swap the axles over and make it 4wd. so my ?'s are is this dually axle the same width as a 4wd single rear, and i also want to take off the front spacers to run normal rims do i have to find another high pinion axle or will any dana 60 work. thanks .

Cab and chassis frames are narrower and do not interchange. The spring perches are different widths.

I would stick with a HP D60 if I were you or else you'll run into front driveshaft-crossmember clearance issues.

The front axle will work just fine with some SRW hubs on it, that's what I have in my junk. F250 Dana 50 hubs work nicely, and are easy to find.
I'm assuming the frame on your donor narrows at the back of the cab and is pretty much straight from there back?
For the rear, I just took the gears out of the cab and chassis axle and put them in my existing 10.25. I did measure it out, and IIRC, width was within an inch or so wms to wms, so moving the perches on the axle to suit could also work.
This is assuming you're working with an 80-97 F250 and 350.
