94 ZJ 3.73 front axle on 98 ZJ (5.9)?

Hello everyone

Quick question...

Is it a simple axle swap for my niner or would I have to deal with a few mods due to some differences in the 94 front axle and the 98?

TIA

Might be some fiddling with the front driveshaft, but its a direct swap over.

It should swap right over like whiteout said. Grab the driveshaft from the 94 too just in case

Thank you all! It gives me confidence to move forward with this.

I believe I won't run into any problems with the driveshaft since mine already has the UJoint style.

Regards
