Ruicon axles are the easy way out, no work, bolt and go.
They can be found for 1k per axle.

You may not be happy with stock ones they have 4:11's, that will cost more to regear.

Waggy axles, the front is stonger then a rubi.
But need modfied to fit. IIRC width is a tad narrower.

Your axles you take off should be worth something, 4:88 & lockers !

Skid, go to jeep forum look up imped he used flat steel and raised his up flush. Took some trans tunnel massage with a small hammer and a cable t case shifter. It can be done. Either way you will want a SYE.

Or you could use a small spacer and flat steel (1/4") and get the same height as a formed tummy tuck skid, no body hammering. Weld a piece of angle or tube on each end to stiffen. Try to get one in the middle too. Drill and die grinder for slots and holes as needed. Counter sink skid for frame holes or use tube as spacer and put over sized hole in skid and keep bolt heads up in tube.
