Dually Swap

I fount a '95 Reg Cab F-350 Gas 4x4 Dually, would the front and rear ends swap over to my '96 Reg Cab Dually?
Also if after I do this (after I do some power mods) would I be able to pull say a 28'-30' gooseneck Stocktrailer Fully loaded?

Is the 95 a cab-n-chassis or a conversion?

Is your 96 a pick up or cab-n chassis?

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seat for OBS. PM me if any known

You need to measure the frame width on the 95 and compare it to your 96. If the 95 is a real cab n chassis, the frame will be narrower, therefore the spring perches will be narrower and require modification. Otherwise, if it's not a cab n chassis, then to answer your questions, yes and yes. Also, on the front springs, you must also consider the spring rates. If it's a small block, such as a 351 instead of a 460 big block, you'll need big block/diesel springs to support the PSD weight. Ford made 2 different spring rates, one for small blocks, and one for big blocks and diesels.
