99 to a 2005 coil spring front end help

Hey guys I sold my 12 inch lift and 42s and wheels and I am swapping my truck over to a 2005 front end. I have the truck I am getting the axles out of. Unroll tommorrow and I am wonderting what all I need to get off of it. I ordered 8 inch bds lift and 20x12 machined and black xd. Diesels.and 38x 15 toyos. Also should I swap the rear axle to? Or just the front?

Yes swap the rear axle too! Have you checked what gear ratio you have?

2001 - 14" OUO 525 - 38x15.5x20 Toyo & 20x12 Weld Cheyenne's. Hybrids, 38R, BTS, Spearco, Terminators..

Are you doing a write up on this swap. I wouldn't mind checking all of this out.

I'm addicted to diesel and I step on it constantly!

O I can I will just use this and post pics here. So far I have tore my truck downbeat and I got the front axle, track bar, draglink, stabilizer and all brackets off the frame I still have to get the spring buckets but that's it I think. My lift will be in on wed or Thursday so there won't be much progress till then
