Just FYI F-150's and Broncos are 1/2 ton trucks and are so by virtue of the fact that the suspension, axles etc. are rated at the 1/2 ton capacity. Unless modified aftermarket, they are all 1/2 ton trucks. F-250's are 3/4 ton and 350's are 1 ton. They go up from there 450, 550, etc. but the jump is greater than a ton each time.

I know GM made what they called a "heavy half" years ago which was essentially a 1/2 ton truck with 3/4 ton springs under it. I am not aware that Ford did anything to counter that offer. I could be wrong.

My uncle had one of them heavy half, they sucked cause they had 3/4 springs but the axles were still 1/2 tons. He split the rear end hauling a 16' trailer loaded with hay, then he went back to using his old ford that had a 9"

I got the hubs and the conversion kit and was ready to install, but i didnt know i needed the spanner locknuut wrench. i can see that you can buy them for 25$, but is there a way to do the conversion with out this specific wrench? I was also wondering if there was anyone who lives in the northern virginia area that already has one and was willing to share for the instalation? Thanks

Autozone rents them for free, but with a deposite.
I would just buy cause you will probly need it the future, too front end work such as rotors, and bearings.
