My 2000 F350 has a Dana 60 up front. I THINK all the 350's from at least 99-03 had the 60 up front, though I've been wrong before.

I'm pretty sure the D60 only came in DRW setups from 99-01 and the D50 came in all SRW trucks in the same years.

Beyond 01 D60 was standard in both SRW and DRW.

Problem is, the D50 looks the same as a D60 and the guts are different. Only issue I think in switching would be if you had an early 99 without ABS.

Should be a direct boltup.

Depends on how old of a D60 you want. The old military pickups and Cucv's ran D60's up front. You can get ahold of one of those axles pretty cheap. If you do get a D60 before you install it I would be adding a true trac kit from detriot locker. That way you have added traction in 4wheel drive. Or if you have the money better yet an electic locker from Detriot would be even better.

The pinion is longer on the 60. You can source a shaft in the right length or have it cut.
