YJ Dana 35 in a TJ

So the rear diff in my TJ (1998, 4 cyl, 4.10 gears) blew up. I am done with the Jeep and just want to fix it up and sell it. So my understanding is the cheapest/easiest way to get it back on the road is to swap in a new axle. Trouble is, I can't find ANY TJ D35s for sale in the area. How much work is involved in putting a YJ axle under a TJ?

More than it is worth. Swap in an 8.8 with 4.10 gears out of an explorer and you will INCREASE the value, not detract from it. You are gonna have to fab up coil buckets anyways so put in the axle that people want and it will help sell it.
