2nd Gen Frontier Axle Swap

Going to start collecting parts for a 2nd gen SAS. I'm wondering what the idle donor axle would be for the front. I know the important part is the driver side pumpkin but is there anything else I should look for? Would like to use either a Dana 44 out of an older F250 or a Dana 60.

Keep it simple. Grab an axle set form 05 newer super duty. Cant beat that running gear for the price and durability.

That would be strong, but ridiculously wide.

77-79 F250 axle is optimal if going D44. High pinion and about the right width.

You also need a real steering box since those trucks have R&P steering.
