Rear swap???

I am thinking of doin a axle swap on my 96 zj I've got the horrible d44 w/ 3.73's. I"m thinking the d60 w/ 4.56'ers would let me run the 37s I want, bein that it has the 35 spline but my question is i really want to do this sooner than later how can i do it in a cost effective way? Also does anyone on here run a welding rearend/ full spool on a DD. I've heard of some guys runnin a welded rear on cjs but nothing newer? any and all advice/comments welcomed thx

he would get some wheel hop when making tight turns. like in a parking lot or something. he convinced me to wait and get a lunchbox locker. at least it shuts off sometimes.
