Axle and brake question

I am one day hoping to change out my front axle to a Dana 44 or 60 and perhaps upgrade the rear on my Sport. Since I am thinking of the TF BBK and don't want to throw good money after bad will the TF BBK w/ calipers be a direct swap on any D44 or D60 axle?

is it because of the bolt pattern or something else? Will my AEV wheels work on a Dana 60?

most aftermarket dana 44's for the JK will use your current outer knuckles, so in most cases that will work just fine.

Dana 60's wont work and your wheels wont work either. There arent any 5 on 5 dana 60's, the lug pattern is not possible because it is too small from what I understand.
