The 10.5" is modeled after the 14BFF. Quite a few parts will interchange.

Read through some of the builds here and search around a bit. In the end its all chunks of metal. The best part is it can be cut, turned, and welded into whatever you want.

Do the 10.5s take the drop in detroits like the older 14 bolts?
Yes they do,same locker. They take the same gears too but the bearings are different. Oh and the reason for people not running a chevy diff: First the front shaft is on the driverside now, the exhaust and y pipe all run on the other side. So most can use the factory exhaust with slight mods. Second is the high pinion feature of the ford 60s....that means a ton with a lifted truck. With a leaf spring kit and a dana 60 no perches have to be moved , 60s will have 2 widths 31-36(you will see that when you look at kits)
