If you search there is a lot of info out there about the swap.
Its bolt in but takes some time and parts to get it right.
You need the axle, lower leaf spring plate on the driver side, track bar, track bar mount, steering linkage, possibly 4wd hubs(depending on factory hubs u have now), leaf springs (not required but ride is improved), calipers and mounts if the axle is older than your truck, sway bar and frame links if so desired.
I finished mine up.. Things to note...
1. My axle was from a 97 dual lie and my truck is a 97 250 .
2. The dual lie spindles work with the 250 rotors no problem.
3. The 250 3 Allen head screw 4wd auto hubs wont work on the D60. The 5 screw head ones will or you can use the Warn or Ford manual hubs.
4. 250 Upper spring plates work fine.
5. F250 pit man arm works but when you adjust the toe there is very little adjustment left to get it toed in. Mine still lined up ok though.
6. You have to buy 3 bolts for the track bar mount to the cross member.
7. If you have an automatic like mine the 250 drive shaft works fine.
8. Replace the track bar bushings if it is a used bar unless they are in good working condition.
9. The F350 springs work well and ride height increases about 1.5-2 inches.
10. You can use 9/16x5 inch bolts for the spring mount bolts if you cannot find M14x200 bolts or your stock bolts are corroded.
