axle swap question

found out I have crappy 3.07 gears and with the 33's the PO put on it explains some things... Since I want to replace the gears I'm thinking i do an axle swap at the same time depending...

What is the closest axle swap using junkyard supplies that would be a near bolt in replacement... little or no welding.

I'm not going to do real serious wheeling mostly sand trails and mud/water around here in south Jersey. little or no rock crawling.

Ford 8.8 from an explorer. Find one with 4.10's then get a complete front axle from a 4 cylinder yj. The 8.8 is the easiest swap, with just a small amount of welding. (Spring perches and shock mounts). The front axle will bolt in. The 8.8 is almost the same width, the same bolt pattern and has rear disc brakes. Do a search for yj 8.8 swap on Google. You will find tons of info and how to pages.

If it has tracks, tires or tits, its gonna cause a problem.
