First time axle swap. Anyone wanna help?

Hey fellow jersey jeepers. Im in the process of buying a dana44 with factory locker and compressor out of an 04 rubicon. Iv read around and i know it should bolt right up to my 97TJ but since its my first time ever doing an axle swap or working on the axles was wondering if anyone would be willing to come help me out. Pizza and beer will be in presence. Help a fellow Jersey jeeper out!

Thanks guys.

And I'm home March 9-18 on spring break and would love to switch it over then.

I've never swapped an axle before, but if I'm around and you need an extra pair of hands I'd be interested

Where you located at. Axle swaps are pretty easy. As ling as bolts come undone easy.
