Question Step one in converting yj to ford undercarage

So il start off with the store....simple I wanted a early bronco and my old man wanted a jeep...so I ended up with a 1995 jeep yj, So after lots of swearing and bitching after the weak dana30 and dana35 axles I decided that I was gona do a axle swap. While my old man is overseas.
<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
-My first option was a set of early bronco axle with the arms and somehow retro fit the bronco dana44 front suspension setup with the arms to the jeep with the rear being the 9inch.(I gus this would be wicked setup if it work) <o></o>
<o></o>
-My second option is a set of 1968 f250 axles with closed knuckles with a matching rearend. <o></o>
<o></o>
So what’s the best? Should I use the early bronco axles or the f250 closed knuckles? Or try to find another setup….

i intend on running 38inch tires that have 15 inch rims so am looking for a setup that is able to use 15ich rims so i dont have to get rid of my tires.

let me know what you think

Not into this type of retro; but cool to see someone doing it. Got a friend big into this type of off-roading stuff.
Looking forward to seeing your progress and project take shape.

EB axles for sure! I put a set under a ranger years ago and was great. Built right the 44 will be stout.
