Your gears have to be set up before you drive it. They must be the same front and rear.
If this is primarily going to be a show truck then why not just get a set of wagoneer axles? 37's would be fine on dana 44's on a show truck and your wheels won't stick out so far.
Dana 60 and 14 bolt are going to be much wider than what you have now, and whatever you get will most likely need new spring mounts and shock mounts welded on.
Swapping axles is a big project.
