05 axle swap question

to convert my 03 setup to an 05 setup is a bolt up or what? are the frames different from the 03-04 to the 05-07? the rear axle i know (pretty much) is a direct swap but for the front suspension and transfercase hook up, is it all straight forward? how do the radius arms bolt up?

reason is cause i have a chance to do a swap rather cheaply.

I'll point you in the right direction, Jarrod:

05+ Axle swap! Complete
99-04 F250 leafspring to Coil conversion HELP!

Looks like this sort of swap is pretty straight forward.

If I could ever find a wide-track axle for my rig, I'd have no issues being able to sell my stock one to guys looking to do this.
