You are going to have to post on a Ford forum or do a google search for 9" ford measurements. Your rear axle would be the same as a 1979 which is roughly 58" WMS.

I would recommend a 1957-1972 Ford pickup 9-inch. The housing width is 56" and it will finish up around 61" when assembled.

This is how NAXJA Midwest Chapter elected officials like to treat their resident users and former multi-year supporters.

I did a Dana 61 (not a misprint) from an E350 van in my son's '83 Wide Track Cherokee. Would've been nice offroad if it hadn't been stolen.
