Default Cab swap

Alrighty guys, need your help and quick.
I have a 91 F150 Reg Cab 4x4. I found someone selling a 91 F250 Reg Cab 4x4 with a 460 for a grand. Can I swap the bed and cab from my F150 onto the F250? I really want the Dana 60's and the 460.

the cab and bed will match up no problem, but the F250 would most likely have a dana 50 TTB front end and a sterling 10.25 or or 10.5 rear end. the F350's got a solid axle front with a dana 60 and a 10.5 out back...

Thanks for the clarification. But either way, it's more solid than the F150 right? Also cheaper to lift. I'm not much of a fan of those twin beams up front.

Bodies will swap right over. The f150 has coil sprung ttb. The 250 has leaf sprung ttb. The coil spring ttb is better, but you can 60 swap the 250 much easier than a 150. The 150 has an 8.8 rear the 250 has a 10.25

What do you mean by coil sprung TTB is better?

He's saying it's better than a leaf sprung TTB.

Better than leaf sprung. The arc a ttb axle follows swings out and is and it goes up and down, leaf springs can not allow for this type of arc, the bushings don't last long and alignment gets weird after backing up. The coil springs can move in any direction so these issues aren't as prevalent.
