95 wrangler, need advice

Damn I wrote this out once and it did not post for some reason:

I'm about to buy a 95 YJ with a carburated 350 small block and turbo 350 transmission. Apparently the engine was rebuilt 6 years ago. 4 wheel drive works, however I'm not sure if he kept the transfer case or changed that also. The body is in excellent condition for a 95. Small rust spots on LF fender and rear door. No rust on interior at all. The price is the best part, $1500.

My first upgrade I am planning on would be the axles. It still has the stock jeep axles in it. I have an 88 Blazer K-5 with a good drive line, brand new American Racing wheels, and 33x12.5 inch tires. I was wondering if it is possible to change out the entire axle housing from blazer to jeep. If not what are some good fairly cheap axles to swap out in there. I am a mechanic and I do have access to a shop, so I can do most of the work. Any suggestions or advice are welcome!!

I think anything is possible. What is the width on the K-5 axles, full? I like it, I say if it is doable, then use those axles from the k-5.
