New/Old Commando Axle Question

So I just purchased a 1972 Jeep Commando for my father and I to build as a project over the next few months/years (a real project is never done) before his Alzheimerís kicks in all the way and makes this dream of our impossible. Its a fairly stock commando that needs more drivetrain tweaks than anything (and a paint job, its this horrible lime green / yellow geometric pattern that gives me a headache) . The engine kicks on and revs fine, tranny shifts and everything, but the drive shafts have to be adjusted to reach. The previous owner put axles from a 1984 Toyota truck. Thatís all the info I have on them, but its all going to an AMC 304 V* with the TH400 auto trany. I donít know what truck model, tonnage, gear ratio, nada. I was wondering if anyone here has done this, and may already have dimensions on what the driveshaft and tie rod need to be, because at this point I cant drive it to a shop, and I donít have a vehicle large enough to pull it. Im new on here and as far as jeeps go, this is the first one Iíve purchased. Ive only ever messed with FWD vehicles, and never lifted anything, only lowered, so this is all fresh for me. Thanks in advance for all the help and the time it took to read this! Sorry if Im leaving large gaps in the details, if you need any more info, let me know and Iíll do my best to provide! Please be nice.
