Question Swap ! Dana 30 F&R To Dana 65 Rear and 60 Front

Hey guys,
im looking to do a swap from my dana 30's to a dana 65 in the rear and a 60 in the front. I'm doing the swap becuase i crawl and mud and repairs are getting too expensive to replace , so i believe its time to go for a stronger axel with a better gear ratio. My question to you guys is exactly how to go about doing this swap, Its a 89 Wranger with a 98 Tj 4.0 H.O engine in it, the Dana's are coming out of a 78 CJ 7. Any Advice ?

Not sure there is such a thing as Dana60's in a stock CJ7... unless the guy fabbed them to fit. If they are still full-width perches you either have to outboard your hangers or change the perches on the axles to get them to line up with your hangers. Either way, it's going to take some work. Any more info about the axles as far as what been done to them and the Jeep they are coming out of?
