OBS donor parts for e99???

Background- I have a complete 97 OBS F350 donor truck with very low miles, but severe body damage, no mechanical damage though. Just bought an e99 F350 and want to know what parts I can steal off the 97 for the e99.

A few quick questions- are the stock alloy wheels on the e99 F350 trucks the same as the ones that came on the 97s? Just bought an e99 (04/28/1998) and the 16" alloy wheels look very similar to what my 97 OBS 350 has.

Also, I saw that a 5 speed man tans was an option in e99, can I swap my 5 spd out of my 97 into the e99?

Finally, how hard would it be/is it worth while to swap the axles from my 97 into the e99?

Any other parts worth keeping?

Thanks for the help guys!

I know the internal gears on the axles are ok to install in the SD body. not sure about the whole axle. I to want to go to a bigger gear. I have 3.73's and would love a 4.10-4.30 ratio for my f250
