44 and 60 swap on YJ

Got a chance to pick up a complete hub to hub, drum to drum set of axles from a 79 F250 for my 89 YJ. I have not had time to research this swap and the opportunity has come quick and will be gone fast. Guy wants 500. for both and I wanted to know 1. if this is a good deal(think so from what I have seen)2.How much wider are the axles 3.This is pretty rushed, so to allot you it may seem a stupid question. I am running a 700R4, much work dome to it and a SBC that is not yet done, but will be mostly stock. Ever body has told me at some point I will need to loose the stock YJ axles...any input?

Thanx in advance

Yeah go for it. The dana 30 and 35 are probably not gonna hold up to a small block very well. I think you will have to move the spring mounts on you're axles (not sure as I've never personally done 1). But I'm sure someone will chime in here shortly that has. I'll PM you my number so you can call, I live in Va Beach so you're not to far from me.
