Question Axle swap front TJ

I have a 97' Tj, I have found a Ford 9' out of a lincoln Versi for the rear, Now I want to know what I should do for the front, I thought of a Dana 44 from a 1974-1978 F150, but I read that they have to be re-tubed and of course cut down. I want to find something easy like I did the rear. I live in an area where it is easy to find just about anything. Not many rock-crawlers in Mississippi. What is out there that has the same drop as mine, that I won't have to cut and can that I can easily weld the TJ brackets on. Even if I did have to cut it down, what could be used that wouldn't have to be re-tubed. Need help I am a newbie.

Try a D44 out of a Waggy. Or you could try to do a search......

D44 out of a ford or a D44 out of a Wagoneer are both Drivers drop but both will be wider than your little 9"

9 inch

Why did you say my 9 inch is little, isn't it wider than my stock rear now. Have not gone to pick it up yet so I have not measured it yet.
