New gears. new carrier?

This is my first post. My first forum.
I've owned my 94 Sahara for 2 years. This is my 2nd Jeep. Sold my mostly stock 83CJ a year before I bought this last one.
I just installed a 3.5 Black Diamond lift with optional Steering stabilizer and drop pitman arm. (Rouger riding than I expected)
The stock axles have 3.07 gears. I want to swap to 4.11s. Do I need to change the carrier for the gears? Is there a specific way I should go if I plan on somekind of locker for the rear?
I will be running my Michelin 235s for the canadian winter and I plan on 33x10.5 BFGMuds for the snowless months.
Any help is great
Thank you!

The carrier split is between 3.54 and 3.73's, I believe. If you want a locker that replaces the carrier then it's probably good to do it now rather then later. You won't have to pay extra labor since the carrier needs to come out anyway.

I have the same lift. It will mellow out in a while. Grease your shackles, remove your swaybar and rear trackbar and flex it off-road for a while that will help them break in (and it's fun). Also check your rear shackles. Mine were hitting the aftermarket trailer hitch that I added on and weren't getting a full range of motion. Man you talk about bounce! That'll do it! I swapped up to boomerang shackles and now it is as smooth as a jeep can be.
