chrysler 8.25 in yj

i was wondering if anybody does this swap?? i tryed searching but no luck. will a 8.25 bolt up to the factory mounts on a yj? ( i know i would need to weld on new perches and mounts right?) i have heard that the newer models have 29 spline so that should be strong enough for 33's locked correct? i just feel like the 8.8 swap is a large undertaking and wondering what is the smarter decision.
