If you get a DUALLY Ford you'll have the same Rears - Dana 60 front and Dana 80 rear that you had in your Dodge.

The link supplied I wrote up does a decent job of getting you familiar with what to look at... hope it helps!

Just a heads up, if you care, 99s and 00s have forged rods and can handle a little more power the the 01-03 7.3 trucks. On the flip side there are 01-03 trucks running around with some pretty impressive #s. Good luck finding your new truck
