Getting new gears(I know with ones) but have questions

It's been a while since I boght my jeep and I'm looking into lifting my jeep. I plan on a 3"-4" lift and 33" tires. I've been reading about gears, lockers, etc. Well I have a 94YJ with 3.07 gears. I plan on getting 4.11 gears and from what I read I'm going to need a different carrier because the current one will not work correct? Also how can you tell if you have an ABS axle. I've read that just because you don't ABS dosn't mean the axle isn't set up for it. I was also thinking about getting some kind of locker or limited slip while I was doing this. Does anyone know of a good website with reviews on lockers and so forth. Also what do you guys think of buying used gears, carriers and lockers. If there is any other things that I should watch out for please let me know.
Thanks
Kenneth
One more question are there any good trails near New Orleans (East Texas, Mississippi and Arkansas) to go on.

Yup, you're gonna need a new carrier. Now if you buy a full carrier locker (ie, ARB, Detroit) then that will take care of the carrier.

Used gears have a tendency to whine a little. Primarily cause they're not likely to be setup identically. But in a Jeep, as much ambient noise as we suffer from, who cares about a little gear whine. As long as the gears are in good shape, I wouldn't worry about it. But you're not gonna get a warranty on the labor if you install used gears.

Oh! One more thing. The best way to accomplish this is just to buy the axles from a fellow with a 4 banger that's upgrading. The 4 banger has 4.10s stock. Then you can cannibalize your current axles for spares.

You don't have ABS, but you do have the ABS carrier... keep this in mind when you are ordering your locker. We ran into this on my friends '94YJ when we ordered the non-ABS locker and it didn't fit.

Boy, sure would be nice if it were that simple. Unfortunately, not all 94YJs had the ABS carrier. Some do, some don't. If he replaces the carrier with a Detroit or ARB, then it doesn't matter anyway. Only if you replace with a lunchbox locker do you have to worry about that. And since he's gotta replace the carrier to put in the deeper gearset, it'll get replaced anyway. So it's really not an issue in his case.
