Rear axle info?

I am aware that all of the liberty's use the 8.25" chrysler rear axle. Can someone give me the WMS to WMS dimension? I am looking to switch my cherokee over to 5x5 bolt patten and am thinking that the shafts will slide in if the length is correct. I will be swapping to KJ or KK disc brakes on my 8.25 also.

I would like to get ahold of a KK rear 8.25 and swap the disc brakes and axle shafts.

All the 8.25's in a KJ/KK are 4.5 on 5 bolt pattern.The axle lengths are different also from a KJ/KK 8.25 to a XJ or Dakota pickup.
