To give you quality feedback (especially since you have not filled in your profile telling us what equipment your Jeep has, year, engine, tranny etc) we need to know what rear axle you have right now that you wish to rebuild.
If its a stock D35 or D35C - I wouldn't invest in rebuilding that axle knowing its reputation all too well.
Also, if it is a stock D35 or D35C, seems you got some bogus info as far as a ratio change since it can easily be regeared to 4.88 if you change the carrier at the same time.
You can run two different ratios in the differentials - precautions and a few steps need to be taken to ensure you don't use 4wd.
