ABS Dana 35 shafts stronger?

I know this is pretty much a silly question and it's almost pointless but I was curious.

I helped pull the Dana 35 out of my buddy's 01 XJ yesterday, somehow he broke it to where the pinion will shake back and forth.

He's pitching that piece for an 8.25 he found and I took the spider gears and the axle shafts from it to keep as extras.

My question is since he has ABS and my TJ doesn't, are his shafts a bit stronger than mine? I could have sworn I heard this somewhere but I couldn't remember.

Even if they are stronger can I get them on my TJ with that wheel speed gear thingy on them?

Again I know this is pointless but a little strength couldn't hurt until I finish my 8.8 this summer. (I'm kinda scared now because he was only running 31 MTs and I'm running 33s that are turned by my stroker )
