questions on a project jeep before i buy

im looking at a project jeep and i can get a chrysler 8.25 rear end for 150 bucks with it. but guy didnt know gearing. does it even come with 4.10's? if so would it be a worthwile swap? what all needs to be done to make it fit a yj? ive heard its about as strong as a dana 44 so should stand up to 35's locked which is as big as i would ever go cuz it would be a dd anyway. i have a parts jeep that is a 93 and this is an 89 so its got different fuel system my questions are would the following parts from the 93 fit into the 89? radiator water pump clutch fan and starter?

the radiator will fit ,starter but nothing else .V-belts and serpentine are way different.ask me how I know.had to do some major mods to make the 89 motor work in my 95.but so far so good. not sure on the rear.
the biggest differance is the crank on the 89 it longer about 3/8 .i had to make a spacer for the front of the harmonic balancer .mod the timming cover.and run all the 95 accessories for it to work.even the fly wheel had to be changed due to the trigger points on the ignition
