97 f250 front axle swap

Have a chance to get a Dana 50 front end from a 2000 f250 and I am unsure if it will work on my 97 f250, if anyone knows if this would be an easy swap I'd like too know, maybe it would be easier to just find one from a 97 f350?

Thanks

Don't swap a 50 for a 50. Find a 60.

If you're wondering about the handle... Creekfreak... I paddle hard, steep, whitewater. It's been my online handle for about 15 years.

I have the twin I beam on mine and want too do a leveling kit but my concern is that I will get the lame toe in on the front wheels which I don't have now, that's why I want to do a straight axle swap so I don't kill the front tires, I want the 60 just hard to come by
