newb with questions

hello all i am new to this forum and i have some questions i have a 93 yj with a 4.0 and ax15 i have a 97 f350 i bought that i am thinking about selling. i would really like to use the axles, engine and transmmission in the jeep if possible. just curious if it woudl be a good idea. i believe the rear axle is a ford 10.25 full floater and the front is a dana 44. engine is a 5.8litre or 351 windsor. transmission is a zf five speed out of a 91 3/4 ton. any help would be appreciated

that sounds like a HORRIBLE idea to me. What you should really do is haul that truck down here to the house..let me give it a shot, and I'll let you know how it turns out.

I don't know, but I found a lot of reference material here:

ha ha well its for sale thanks for link. i think i might just try to find an 8.8 rear. i am looking for axle upgrade but thought if the whole drivetrain and all would fit easy i would just swap it in. sounds like it will just be a rear swap for now though
