Anyone want to help a teen learn/do axle swaps?

I want to do a d44 or ford 8.8 axle swap, but I have never welded and don't have any family or close friends that I trust to help me well enough for this project. I plan on getting the axles out of a junk yard.

If anyone is near the Richmond, VA area, I would love for some teaching/just working on jeeps. Could be fun! I'm 17 by the way - I'd definitely treat it as an internship. And I'd buy you beer! or at least give you money to buy beer haha.

I'm 2 hours North of you in Warrenton, Va. but I've done what your looking to do and may be doing some axle swapping on my YJ this year.
