Rubicon Axles/Lockers in a Non-Rubicon

Other than some differences in the ujoints on the driveshafts and the disk brakes vs. drum brakes, I know that its a straight bolt on axle swap. What I'm wondering is what is needed, how difficult is and what are the costs associated to hook up the stock Rubicon air pump and lockers without having the wiring? I've found a set that has all but the wiring and I'm considering getting them.

I could be wrong but I believe there is re-gearing involved...

No regearing and wiring if you have the real rubicon compressors no big deal unless you want to run the factory nanny system that decides if you can activate lockers based on only 4 low and only certain speeds but to manually control the compressors is no wiring prob at all

You may need special u points to use your stock driveshafts and if you are replacing the turdy five the length may or may not be and issue

Brakes are easy but park brake cables easiest to use rubi cables

You end up with 411/410 gears with a hybrid viscous limited slip and selectable in back and a selectable front that is Bart D30 and part D44 but exactly same as in the stock rubi
