Axle/Hub Compatibility

I've been searching around the forum, and can't seem to find a thread on this. Sorry if i missed. What I'm wondering is, can I take the axles and hubs (automatic locking I assume) out of a donor ZJ and put them in my 5.2 (formerly full time). I can't afford the crazy expensive Warn conversion hub kit right now. The Jeep I bought for parts has a newly rebuilt front end, so the axles are going in mine anyway. Just hoping the hub locks fit, too.

Zjs did not have locking hubs of any kind. The only way to make them locking is the warn kit.
