85 F250 axle swap

Post #1 by 85Hooptie » Sat Nov 17, 2018 3:30 pm

I have an 85 F250 light duty. One of my projects is to pull my flatbed and beef up the frame and add a gooseneck hitch. I'm not sure what the stock axle is yet, but I know its not a full floater. I'm looking to put something heavier in. Looking for suggestions.

Look for a F350 axle like a Dana 60 or 70 for an almost bolt swap. Good luck :thumbup: :nod:
