Ford 8.8 on tj??

I am planning to dump the 35 and getting something a bit stronger. Getting a dana 44 with the mounts on it already would be easy, but very expensive. I can Pick up a ford 8.8(31 spline) out of a junkyard for 300 bucks. How hard do u think it would be to weld on all mounts and spring buckets?? Getting all angles? And can i find a kit with all mounts for this axle that will make it tj compatible? I can do all the welding myself, but i dont know about matching everything up for everyday safe driving

besides the c clip the 8.8 is stronger then the 44
plus if you get one out of a 95 or newer explorer you have disk brakes
superior has a C clip eliminator kit comes with alloy axles
but i8f you ever brake an axle the caliper will hold in the axle so you can nurse it back to camp or home
