If you do the hydroboost conversion, you might consider adding a small cooler to the system.

The above works well in my climate.
I have had trouble with Mopar ATF+4 boiling in factory 2nd gen hydroboost setups when towing during the summer.

Theres also a pretty involved conversion that uses front brake components from a OBS ford.

Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 Dana 60 Hub removal and converison to Ford Knuckles | Pirate 4x4

I believe the best option is to install a complete 00.5 - 02 Dodge D60 front axle and install some 03+ Ram HD brakes. Keep in mind that 01.5 - 02 do not have the CAD system if that matters to you.
