Front D60 question

New project - I picked up a 92 YJ with a blown 4 cyl engine for $300 - couldn't pass it up
The plan is to link it and run coilovers and 60's front and rear, 5.0/C6/Atlas drivetrain, 40's on beadlocks.
Question is - would I be better off hunting down a 78 - 79 Ford HP 60 front or will the 85 - 91 Ford HP 60 front (with the pumpkin 3" further to the driver's side) work just as well? Anybody think I'll run into driveshaft/trans clearance issues?

79 if you want it easy, 86 if you outboard your springs.


Edit: Linking and coilovers...Doesnt matter which you get.

is it true you can just cut the long side down and respline the axle to make it fit? without even touching the short side. using 93 f 350 hp dana 60 axle?

I don't want to cut it down - I want full width axles.
