Look back in the forums. The same question has been asked countless times.

It realy depends on what kind of use you want out of the truck, if its a trail only rig your going to want the some beef like a dana 60
if it is a daily driver you might not want realy wide axles, you may want the abs system to still work
do you want the lug pattern to match front and back? if so what rear axle do you plan on running?
