Does this seem like a good deal?

Go out and look at your front axle and driveshaft. The diff is offset to the driver's side and the driveshaft runs down that side of the jeep. That axle you linked has the diff offset to the other side of the jeep. Was on a vehicle where the transfer case front output was opposite yours.

The rear axle is also offset. Waste of money for a tj swap. Let them go.

Okay I understand that about the front. And I wasn't sure how easy of a swap the rear would be. I figured for that price might as well see. Oh well, I'll keep looking. Thanks guys!
