Yup. The Dana 50 TTB hubs will bolt directly to a D60. Just be certain you have a D50 hub! If your hitting the wrecking yards, the easiest way to tell if your looking at a D50 is the u-joints. The D50 has circle clips on the outside of the u-joints. The D44HD has the clips on the inside of the yoke, so the u-joint caps are flush with the yokes.

What will swap: The hubs, lockouts, brakes, bearings, seals.
What wont swap: The knuckle, the spindle.
Thats it

I have 50 spindles on my 60. IIRC they are just a hair shorter.
