Axle Swap Help

Hey everyone! I have a '76 CJ5 and I still has the stock AMC 20 in the rear and the stock Dana 30 in the front. Does anyone have any suggestions for a good set of axles that will give me a little more width. Those CJ5s have such a narrow wheel base. Im lookin for something that'll be fairly easy to swap out with out a whole bunch of extra stuff. Thanks

Go widetrack axles from a later CJ7 82-86 and use a Scout 2 Dana 44 rear or 66-77 Ford 9" out of a Ford Bronco. Disc brakes 5 on 5/1/2 bolt pattern( Jeeps 41-86)
Note: some 86 CJ7's came with a wide track Dana 44. I got mine!
