'04F-250Super Duty 4x4, a donor for '06 E-350?

I have first right of refusal on a '04 F-250 Super Duty 4x4 with blown motor.
This to convert my '06 E-350 Super Duty 6.0. To 4wd.

Seller's Description:
"3,500 obo - 2004 Ford F250 4x4 6.0 Powerstroke Turbo Diesel (Not Running)
Read full post. New Bilstein shocks, 6 month old 35x12.5x17 TOYO AT II, Weld forged aluminum 17x10 wheels, new late model mirrors, newly recovered bench seat, new bestop soft bed cover, new Superchips Flashpaq F5 Tuner, leveled. Transmission shifts perfect and was just serviced with new fluids, both filters, and new shift solenoid and harness. Front and rear axles serviced with new fluid, friction modifier, and gaskets

Considering the lift on the F-250, has 35x12.5x17 tires etc would it be right to assume I'd have most of what I need to do the conversion? I do know I can pick up any and all additional needed parts but am interested to know if I can, with modification use the donor's lift, springs, t-case, running gear etc.
Would I use the front and rear axle to keep the ratios the same etc?
Would I need to swap out the transmission?
Thanks in advance for any input.

I'm using a rear leaf spring from an 04 F250 so the rear spring will work fine. I believe Quadvan uses exactly what are getting from your F250. You have front leafs so you might want to check with ujoint offroad - they have a kit that uses leaf springs both front and rear and uses a lot of F250/F350 stuff so customers can get as much stuff as possible from junk yards.

Thanks Egpeil,
That's the way I'm headed kit from U-Joint and use as much as I can off the donor.Storm season in Florida has slowed me down but hope to start cutting in the next month or two.
I'm going to check to see if you have posted any pics ...
Thanks Again

Yup. It's a good match for doing the U-joint kit.

Trans does not need to be swapped. Only the tail shaft. Yours has likely lived an easier life, considering the tuner that was run on that truck.

Swapping the rear axle is probably a good option, since not only will that match gear ratios, it will match wheel bolt patterns as well, and give you a full float.

You might want to check with Chris @ UJoint about those lifted leafs, and make sure you order the appropriate kit to work with them.
