NO!
There too narrow.... the front axle is a Dana 25 and has a passenger side drop.... the rear has a passenger side offset pumpkin.... why in the world would you want axles from any off the Cj's yet alone the ones from a Cj3?

The guy said that the front is Dana 30 and I only wanted it for the rear Dana 44 but I do notice the passenger side drop on the front

Right on...I can't tell what axle that is in the front from those pix but it doesn't matter cause its a pass drop....the rear won't work for you either cause it to narrow and its an offset pumpkin to mate with the D-18 transfer case that's in your first pic....I'll buy the bell housing SM-420 trans and d-18 tc if that's for sale?

I'd only be buying the frame :/ sorry though, I'm not buying any of it now haha but he said he had 44s out of a late 70s Cherokee chief, would those work?

Naw bud....once again pass drop...you need one from 1981 through 1991 and the Isuzu Rodeo/Honda Passport d44 is a perfect match for the rear...
Good luck and happy hunting.
