Rear axle help

I am wanting to get a rear end from a YJ and use it as a base for a little trailer I want to build. My question is, what is the measurement b/t the spring perches. I would like to know how wide the trailer will end up being

Trailer will be as wide as you make it. Why use a jeep axle though? I would find the cheapest solid axle at a scrapyard and build around that.

I have a buddy that will give me a D35 from his YJ
I want to use it so I can easily run the same stock Canyons. I have a 1964 m416. I would build the frame/body just like the m416, meaning the frame and body are the same width.
I just really want one to match the Jeep

The m416 is 39.5" so that kinda gives me an idea
Thanks, I appreciate it My work has blocked almost all access to the web and I took the lazy way and didn't search here
