Will 05+ axles fit under 2008 F350 4wd

I have a 2008 F350 4wd cclb srw. I am wanting to put a drw setup under it. I cant get a straight answer about what axles are compatible. I am wanting to know if an 05+ will fit under my 08. Half the salvage yards are telling me yes and half are telling me no. Has anyone done this or know somebody that has. Any info would be appreciatted. Also if anyone is wanting to srw their truck and swap I would be interested. Thanks in advance. 601-941-7644. hnix1001@aol.com

I put an 08 rear into my 01. It bolted up. Brake line threads were different where I had to connect it, but it will bolt in. Drive shaft on the newer rear was different(shorter) due to the dampaner on it. Minor mods will be needed but the major stuff is not an issue

keep in mind( I THINK IN 05) Ford switched from 8on170 lug pattern to the 8on200 for duallys. I am not sure how you would add front spacers to your existing front end axles.
The 04 back 8on170 will bolt to your front hubs but would leave you with different lug patterns which would be different wheels. If you gt a rear from a 99-04 and the font spacers from the same you can get those wheels. I would not switc front diff's etc unless I had too.
