Default Lift and axle swap




Hey everyone, so I have a 99 xj on a 5.5 inch RE long arm lift. Some dumbass ran into the back of me and bent the frame badly. Long story short I found a 91 xj with 60k miles that was a grocery getter for an older woman and garage kept for 3k. How difficult would it be to take the lift off of my Jeep and put it on the 91? Also Id want my 8.25 rear axle and my transfers case with sye and the new drive shaft. The reason I want to still use the front half of the lift is because it wasnt only 30 days old when it was hit. I plan on just replacing the rear springs and shocks.

It all just unbolts. Not hard. Just take it one part at a time

Thanks, I wasnt sure how easy it would be. Think Id be able to fully swap everything out in a week with the help of a couple others?
