Chrysler 9.25 axle

Have a Chrysler 9.25 rear axle that was given to me but it needs new gears and bearings in it. What's everyone's opinion on this axle under a cj7? I have the narrow track axles under it now and I am looking for a wider stand and beefed up axles but on the cheap side... Do y'all think this axle is worth it or should I find something else to put under my jeep?

Is it out of a Dakota or Durango? If so The 6x4.5 bolt pattern is an odd ball pattern and I don't think there is a lot of aftermarket support for it. Not would it be easy to make the front axle match that pattern. Regardless, it sounds like it needs a fair bit of work and money put into it if you don't have the knowledge and/or tools to set up the gears properly. If it were me I would pass and find a more common axle that requires less work.

Something that needs gears/bearings won't be cheap, unless you can do all the work yourself. Even then it could go either way

You are usually looking at $1000.00++ to put new gears and bearings in it and then you have to try to find rims to fit on it as the bolt pattern for the rims is an odd ball.

Stay away from it! I have one in my pickup and am not at all impressed. You can't buy a decent aftermarket locker for them, mine anyway and they use oddball gear ratios. You'd be better off getting a Dana 44 and putting the money into it.
