Default Chevy Axle Swap Questions

I am looking to swap some full size axles in my 84 CJ 7. My friend has a set of axles for a 76 chevy. The rear is a ff14 bolt the front is a dana 44. The only thing i noticed is the front doesn't have lock out.

What do you think.

Rear will fit no problem.

Front will stick out farther on the drivers side because the diff will be against the passenger side spring (so you can't center the axle). You'll either have to outboard the springs or shorten the axle.

You'll also want to swap to part-time hubs, obviously.

Default Hubs

I was wondering about the hubs, is there a kit for that or what do I have to buy. Have never really worked on axles before.

Thank You

Just pull out the drive flanges and install manual hubs.
