help us help you. You haven't told us what you want to do with your truck, what size tires you want, nothing. Really, my philosophy on this kind of thing us that if you don't even know the basics of this kind of thing, you don't need to be messing with a solid axle swap. Changing your suspension like this affects how your truck drives and is very dangerous for someone who doesn't know what they are doing. Do your research first and then we can help you out.

usually D44 up front and explorer or regular 8.8 out back, that should be fine up to like 37's I think. You will need stronger axles to support such large tires but everything else should be fine. If your going to wheel hard though D60 up front and 9" out back.

a D60 and 9" don't compare in strength, more along the lines of a D60 rear or 14bolt

and a D44 and 9" aren't good to a 37 if your really rough on your truck... stock axle shafts that is
