need new axles - 4.56 rodeo axles in a zj ?

what do i need to do to make this happen ?

what am i looking at in terms of fab work to mount them up and get the shafts connected

this will most likely be rolling on 30'ers or 32's at some point

32s? Re-gear the current axles.

Aren't Rodeos IFS anyway? Sounds like a lot of pain for little gain, x3 on just re-gearing what you have.

current axle is **** needs bearings and new tracloc and i was thinking the swap out might be easier on the pocket

but do you guys know exactly what is involved in the process ?

hassle vs $$$$ i'll take the hassle

Almost any swap that is done besides a stocker is going to be around $1000 at least.

If you have a good junkyard close by you might be able to grab a complete axle assembly for less than $100. Then it's just a couple of hours and a few bolts.
