Has anybody swapped axels from a 98 ram to an XJ?

I have a 5.9 ram that is rusted, but I have solid axels, 33s and 35's for it too. I left it when I got stationed in Europe and now I'm trying to figure out if there is a feasible way for me to combine my XJ and my ram. I figure halfshafts, and shocks but I wasn't sure if there was anybody who has done it and has tips

Stock xj axles will hold up fine with 35's and won't cost you several thousand dollars in brackets, parts, and welding to install.
'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.
