Depending on the year of the 8.25 it might have 29 spline shafts. Good from what I recall for upto 33's and a locker if not driven hard.

just rear a front 44 swap is pointless unless your running a dana 300 and want to run a pass side diff. Dana 30s and 44 fronts have the same exact weak point and that is the ears on the U-joints on the front shafts. there is 0 difference between the two axles in shaft strength. run alloys in the 30 and don't go lower then 4:88s and your fine

Go look at a ford 8.8 axle for the rear,(1996-2000ish) bigger tubes bigger shafts, disc brakes cheap in the yards usually under $200 depending on our area.

friend of mine told to me get a ford 9 inch or chevy 12 bolt, but those are still drum brakes, and the fact that i can get disc brakes sounds so nice, would i have to change any cables for like my parking brake or brake lines for the 8.8?

Yes you will have to either buy or make your own set up for your e-brake to work on the 8.8. M.O.R.E. sells everything you need for the 8.8 swap, half of it you can either make yourself or buy somewhere cheaper. Check this site out if your gonna do a 8.8, I highly recommend that over a 9" or 8.25. Check this site out if your going to a 8.8 http://www.jedi.com/obiwan/jeep/ford88.html
This guy done so much research about this its ridiculous, and with him doing this it saves everybody else weeks of research.

An make sure it a LSD 8.8, I bought a open 8.8 just because I got it for $180 with the 4.10 gears in it. It's hard to find a 8.8 with 4.10 and LSD for under $400. Well I got a open one because I got a like new LSD carrier for $25! I know holy shit that's cheap right!

So it straightens out the drive shaft, instead of leaving it at a side angle?

Ya the 8.8 diff doesn't line straight up with the t-case I guess and puts the drive shaft at like a 4 degree angle to the right I believe
