Dana 44/Ford 9" out of 1979 Bronco?

I know that the D44s/9"s out of late 1970s F-150s are generally regarded as the best full-width axles to swap into an XJ, but what about the axles from a '79 Bronco? There's a set available close to me, and I'm playing with the idea of a swap. How do they compare to the axles from an F-150, and how much work would it take to put them under an XJ? I'm no welder, so I'd have brackets relocated/et c. done by a professional. The biggest tires I can see myself running in the future are 35s.

The axles I'm looking at are 31 spline, 65" WMS-WMS, 5 on 5.5 bolt pattern, 3.50 gearing.
