You will have to change the housing ends and then order custom axles.
That makes sense. Starting to think this may be more trouble than it's worth.

The axle is a full-floater out of a Dodge truck. Eight lugger. Eventually going to build a hot rod that will occasionally tow my pop-up camper on vacations (Yeah, sounds crazy, but actually makes sense to me), so I thought the 60 might be a good idea for the strength. But starting to think an 8.8 out of an Explorer will do the same job, and probably be easier to get axle shafts for.
