Thanks. I did a search and didnt find any results. I might just buy a TTB for now and buy a solid axle later.It is not interchangeable. The D50 arms are different lengths and bolt up in different spots IIRC. The leaf springs aren't the prob.
Bunch of threads on this topic.
No need just beef up the stock arms. You sure dont want 8 hole wheels. To much of a pain. New wheels and lots of cranking to change the tires.
The main advantage of the D50 is the bigger crossove u-joint. But the D44 joint only breaks when rock crawling. For that use do a SAS.
If you are breaking R&P put the D50 guts in the D44 housing. Works good. I dont see the need for that either.

I can get any front axle for $150 right now at the local scrap yard and even though I won't have any flex; I think it would be much cheaper to swap to TTB than to have to fabricate and purchase all the things to do a solid axle swap.
Beef up the stock arms? Whats the point? The stock cast iron 2WD I beams seem beefy enough to me.
I was trying to find out of the D50 was interchangeable to I could convert my F-150 to four wheel drive. I may just swap in the TTb and buy a divorced transfer case, but I may not. My main reasons for this are the difficulties I am having while trying to align my factory suspension with a 2" lift. I would like to just do an SAS, but that would require a lot more work.
