8.8 Ford Explorer Axle Swap into YJ???

My uncle is determined that he needs a new axle in the rear and he thinks that he wants to go to a "parts yard" and pull a 12 bolt out of a truck. I have told him not to do this but he does not want to spent very much money. I remembered reading an article that said that a '95 explorer 8.8 rear axle with disc brakes was almost a direct swap into a YJ. Has anyone else done this or heard of this? Please help me turn him away from a full width 12 bolt rear and a narrowed front!
