Dana 60 to Dana 80 conversion

Just picked up a 96 ccsb with a dana 60, I have a spare dana 80 i would like to put under it. The problem is, the dana 60 has 3:55 gears, the dana 80 has 4:10. I dont suppose there is any chance the gears will interchange between the different front ends?

No chance at all. The Dana 80 gears are much bigger than the D60.

There are specialized conversion companies that will convert something like an F650 to 4x4 and use the Dana 80 in a front application.
