1979 bronco axle swap help

I plan on running axles from a 79 bronco I picked up, from what i have read the 79 bronco front axle isn't the best choice, could i get a housing the same width from a truck and use everything else from my 79? any other ideas help thanks.

I know that you can use the outers for sure, you'll have to match up the axle shaft length for the inners. From what I've read it'll be tricky to find one. I just had a thread about this same axle, scroll down to check it out.

Get a 73-77 F-150 HP D44 it uses the same shafts and has 1/2" wall 1 piece axle tubes.
