Newbie with a swr to drw conversion

I have done some searching on the site but have not really found the answer to my question. I have 97 F250 7.3 5 speed that I want to make a DRW I have access to a 2001 F350 that has all the parts. Can i use this parts truck to make the swap.

Thanks Don......

Yes but it's not an exact swap in your case being as the trucks have different bolt patterns, the obs also does not have rear disks stock, but many have used sd axles for axle swap conversions

If it's 4x4 and yours is 4x4 you need to swap the entire axles or get adaptors to run those wheels, the hubs will not swap directly on to your front axle because they are different axles (you may have a solid axle swap I'm not sure but the 86-97 Dana 60 is different then the 99-04 version)
