Welcome.
Now questions.
What size tires are you planning?
How will you be wheeling? Terrain? Hard or easy on the gas?
What gears are you planning?
Budget crunched or open?

Now for bolt in axles any Dana 30 from an 92-99 xj. The 92-96 with abs have the bigger u joints. The 97-99 all have the bigger u joints.

The Dana 30 zj v8 is low pinion but has 3.73 gears.

The Dana 30 out of 4 cylinder xj and tj have 4.10 gears

The tj rubi 44 has 4.10's, locker, is low pinion.

Remember your front and rear must match gears.

What he said /\. A dana 30 hp out of a xj would be great. I ran into 3 at the junkyard this weekend easy to find.

You should be able to use any D30 from a 93 XJ or later. Before 93 they used the vacuum
disconnect system which has weaker axle shafts (two piece on the passenger side) and is
a complication that is better to avoid. The 97 and later use larger u-joints in the wheels.

You will of course need to have the same gear ratio in the front diff as you use in the rear diff.

Do a search on the forum, such as "convert 2wd to 4wd" and it will give you a lot more information.
