TJ D44 into a YJ

I'm wandering around a pick and pay lot looking for a newish 4.0. end up at a totaled 2000 TJ. Looks like a D44 on the back!!! Can this be? How hard is it to swap this puppy into a 88 YJ? Looks like its the same lug patern (5 on 4.5). Are they the same width? The housing isn't one of the aluminium ones is it? Can I just grind off the coil perch and weld on leaf perches...? Why does no one ever mention this swap?

yep just grind off what u don't need, should have 3.73 gear and trac-lok in it to same bolt pattern and correct width, also once u cut all those brackets off how about u send them my way HAHAHA good luck but they will proabaly ask a fortune for it, find a 96+ ford 8.8, stronger same pattern, same width and disc brakes...

Any thoughts on changing the rear of the YJ to coil? or is this just another great big can oh worms?
