80-97HD all F250 4x4's are TTB. If you want an F250 without a TTB you'll need a 79 or older or a newer Superduty. Otherwise you are stuck swapping in a D60 out of a F350 4x4.

The diffs are the same between gas trucks and diesels.

The Dana 60 is the solid front axle. What I mentioned are just two different versions of it. It's just the way steering knuckles are connected to the axle housing. The king pin version is stronger then the ball joint version.
