Dana 50 hub parts for dodge locking hub conversion

I have a Dana 50 axle that I just sold the ring and pinion out of. It is from an early 99 f250. So now I am looking to part out the rest of the axle. I had heard about dodge guys using for hubs and parts to convert to locking hubs. Doing research, it looks like they use early ford parts to get rid of the unit bearing that the dodges have. Does anyone know if the later 50 parts like I have could be used for a conversion to locking hubs? I guess they would still be dealing with a unit bearing but they would get their locking feature.

Is there any value to these parts or should I scrap them? Any ideas?

Theoretically the whole knuckle should swap over but I doubt anyone would want to. The 99+ D50 uses a unit bearing and a different lug pattern. The whole point of the swap with the older parts is to keep the same lug pattern and get rid of the unit bearing. The axle has more value than a TTB D50 but I'm not sure you will find too many people looking for one.
