F-150 straight axle conversion

I have wrecked my 98 F150, Im looking to do one of two things; either find an F250 with straight axles front and rear with a good frame and switch the motor and cab from my F150 onto the F250 frame; or find a set of F250 axles to put under the F150 frame. I understand either way I will have to do fabbing for the suspension or the cab. I just need a set of cheap axles or an F250 with a blown motor or lots of body damage. Any suggestions?

Well im really into offroad everything and im looking for a break to custom fab some stuff on my own. since the F150 i have is 4wd I think it would be a little cheaper and easier to build a rock crawler out of instead of going for the pre runner/trophy truck approach. I was going to put some dana 60 axles so it could withstand the power of a supercharger and cams and some other stuff I want to do to the engine. So basicly i want to make a rock crawler type thing. The axle housing between the diff and the CV joint is broken so either way I have to spend quite a bit of money to get it up and running, so I figured why not make it a rock crawler.
