99 F-250 Superduty Axles

My 1999 F-250 Front D50 needs an upgrade.
There is a guy in my area selling an 1986 F-350 Front D60 and rear D70.

Will the 86 front axle bolt right in my truck?
Can i use my ring and pinion from the D50? (his is a 3.55 mine is 3.73)
Is the D60 from 86 a "unit bearing"?

I plan on building a front D60 with the 3.73 gears.

Any suggestions on parts and or gearing?

would it be worth using his D70 rear or should i keep the 10.5" rear that my truck already has? Will the D70 rear bolt up to my truck?

What should i pay for these axles? He wants $1400 for both...

You can get a used 50 for your truck pretty cheap at the yard.
