Rubicon Express makes some inexpensive perches. Check out Quadratec online if you don't already shop with them. I swapped out a dana44 from a scout on my 95 and I had new hard brake lines put on it and the emergency brake cables were what was stock on the jeep I believe. Have you lifted your Jeep? When swapping out axles it is best to get a better pinion angle set up then weld on your perches. This will keep your jeep from breaking and losing rear driveshafts. Good luck

Ruff stuff 8.8 swap kit is what I went with. There's a few write ups on the e-brake issue too, reusing the jeep stuff.
