  3. This is the intro board read the STICKY follow the rules then you will get your answer
     
  4. use a Ford 9" from a 1958-1972 Ford 1/2 ton pickup for stock width. 58-66 are a bolt-in but get the u-bolts from the donor truck. Later ones require moving the shock mounts. The driveshaft will need shortened no matter which you choose.
