Axle Widths Charts?! Info for axle swap options for Front/Rear

I have been looking for a few hours for a list that makes sense for which axles in which vehicles are what widths? No luck! I'm looking for the widths of many vehicles, including Ford, Dodge, GM tucks & SUVs and anything else for that matter. There has got to be a list somewhere that someone has put together on this. Anyone know of any charts for this?

Ultimately, I'm wanting to figure out what my axle swap options are without narrowing. I'm aware of the obvious ones such as 8.8 96+ Explorer, etc... I'm not too concerned about being a little overwidth as long as it's streetable. I also know people use Hummer wheels to make up for some of the width. I don't mind cleaning up an axle and burning in all new brackets and mounts, but I don't want to deal with narrowing.

It's time to re-gear and I figure I may as invest in the right axle. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I found a much better chart when I was looking for the same info a while back but couldn't find it again, this is one I had saved

If you are doing both axles I don't know of any that are worth swapping with the hp30 without narrowing if you are sticking with 33" tires just leave the 30 I don't know much about the XJ front but if it has a CAD get rid of it. I just finished narrowing my hp60 and it was very easy.
If you are just wanting to do the rear go with the 8.8 or look around the junk yard for a 9" out of an old Ford car a lot of those are around 60" WMS, I don’t like the 8.8 because of the C-clip's and I called Moser and a few others about a C-clip eliminator they all told me they won't handle side load and will start leaking oil.
