first off, it depends on what year axle you are going to use.
personally i would use everything from the F-350.
axle, spring, steering linkage, and driveshaft so when going for parts in the future you just need to tell the counter monkey: i need @#$% for a F350 4X4 whatever year the parts came out of.
owner of almost to many fords.
If you want the moral high ground, make sure you're not standing on a hill of horsecrap.

Machine shop would lengthen it. Just need numbers to give them. Havent had any issues with mine. Everything bolted right up. I use it often, i gut firewood in my days of so it gets abused a bit. Hence why i did the swap. I broke two ttb front diffs chained up. Havent had any issue with the d60
One thing on the F250's is that there was a TSB out that covered replacement front drive shafts if there was a vibration from the front end as you drove with the front hubs locked in. That is how I got the F350 double cardan drive shaft on my 96 F250.
On lengthening it you might want to see if there is a drive line shop in the area that you live. There is more to it than just adding a length of metal to make it work properly. A lot of machine shops are not set up to do it correctly.
