Switching F350 front end to F450 Wide track?

Has anyone tried to switch out their F350 front end to a F450/550 wide track front end? I'm getting an 11' F350 and I really want the wide track and fender flares!! Do you see and problems with parts lining up?

Subscribing to this one, would like to get this sort of swap done to my 2007 TowBoss, if I can find an F450 doner truck with the 4.30 gears in her axles. (I'd do both front and rear, memory serves the F450/550 have a larger 10 bolt configuration).

Yes Colo you are right. I've always wanted to do this to my dually with 4.10s, not only do you get the larger bolt pattern but larger wheels, and bigger brakes too!

SOLD-2006 F-350 CrewCab, short bed dually, 4.10's, FX4/Lariat, PHP tunes & 58v FICM, 5" Diamond Eye exhaust, & much more....
