truck rear-end swap

I want to swap out my weak little ten bolt rear-end in my '90 Chevy full size truck. I've had my eye on these Strange 60 rear-ends, but of course they don't make any bolt-in for my truck, like they do the A-bodies and stuff. I believe you can buy them without the mounts and all, so I was wondering how hard it would be to get all of the hardware and stuff on the rear-end and get it set up to put into my truck. I've already had to rebuild the 10-bolt once about a year and a half ago, so I want something that will last.

Have you considered a full floater 14-bolt out of an older 3/4-ton or 1-ton?

You also might want to look into a 9.5" 14-bolt semi floater. They were put in SS454 trucks and "heavy half" type trucks. Not easy at all to find but they are 33-spline and very strong and will bolt up (make sure you get the u-bolts and plates because the tubes are bigger). I have heard that you can get an 8-lug 9.5" axle and convert it to 5 or 6 lug but I'm not sure what that would take for brakes and such...
