rear axle help durango rear in a dak?

Hi guys I just picked up a 9 1/4 rear from a 99 durango. What do I need to do to make it work in my 97 dak 4x4 with a 8 1/4 in it now. I am at a loss as to what to do and I feel dumb for not researching the difference in the rango and dak to begin with. Any and all help will be appreciated.

The differences have been discussed...multiple times on this site.

Use the search feature, and type in axle swap, and you'll have more info than you can shake a stick at.

The short of it is is remove all brackets, weld new brackets on. Overall (IMHO) you would be better served finding the correct axle for the truck (2x4 vs. 4x4).
