Default Swap from Dana 35 to Chrysler 8.25

Hello. Iím new to the XJ world so bear with me. Iíve tried searching through some pages on this topic but came up short. I have a 94 that Iím trying to build up and everything Iíve read and received input on about the Dana 35 is to get rid of it if I can. Today I found a 99 XJ at a salvage yard in great condition and found it has the Chrysler 8.25 axle. I would prefer the Dana 44 but havenít been able to find any locally yet. So my question is. If I were to get the 8.25 axle, what all do I need to take from the donor jeep. I would be taking the whole axle drum to drum. Do I need to grab the driveshaft also. Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

The axle and driveshaft is all you need.

Make sure it's the same gear ratio as your front axle.
