OBS to superduty axle swap???

My front axle gernaded the other night and I decided I gonna put 2002 superduty axles up my truck can anyone help explain to me what all I will need. I am going to 3:73 gears I heard the rear axle is a direct bolt on. But the front axle sounds like it will be more work??? Any help will be much appreciated!!

Don't know about the kit Carey has but just put a dana 60 in my 97. Everybody I spoke to advised me to get an axle from 80 to 97. Don't believe the nothin to it sayers. I helped the guys that put mine in, they had done quite a few swaps. There was alot of cussing and they had all the right tools.

What? The cord hanging down? It's a hybrid.
