It would be alot of work to make that a leaf spring axle. Just find one out a yj wrangler. they are already leaf sprung axles so it makes it alot easier

Almost every jeep guy has a spare, or knows who does. toughest part of it is finding one with the ratio you want. jeeps ratios are all over the place
