Default Measurments from backing plates

Anybody know the width from each backing plates on an old Ford D60? Really thinking about getting tons for my TJ and I'm gonna go with a GM 14 bolt FF rear and a Ford D60 front. The 14 bolt looks like I won't have to cut anything off the end. Just wanna get an idea about the D60.
