F-750 front axle (size/dive option)?


is it true, that ford now offers the F-650 and F-750 with a driven front axle? Or is it still necessary to remove the stock axle for a driven one?

In either case, is the driven front axle (series, or the seemingly usually military replacement) the same width than the rear?

In case of the F-350-550, the raer axles was typically a bit wieder because of the dual-wheels, is it the same with the bigger trucks?

So if you switched to single rear like the military or earthromer did, would that effect the general width of the truck?

The stock version is 96.4 in width, would be quite handy if this could be reduced a little by switching to single rear wheels and a driven front alxe. (of course with offroad tires you might end up at 96 or above anyway)

No answer on the 4-by question, but 96.4" width on the front axle width?!
I've been trying to research later model F-650/750 drive train to find a suitable replacement for my 56 C series truck. The '98 bow tie chassis currently under it (as acquired) is a non-starter.
Not to hijack, but how did you find front axle track width? I need something that's relatively within the 88" confines of my front fender spread...
