Dana 30/35... Rebuild or upgrade?

88' YJ with stock axles, time to change gears, but I'm not sure if I should rebuild the Dana's or upgrade to something better...

Your profile is not filled out and you've told us very little about your jeep or what type of wheeling you do. How are we supposed to answer?

I recommend Dana 60 and a 14 bolt.

that's over kill. 1 you could regear the 30 and dump the 35 for a 8.8
2 you could use the right year Waggy front axle and then a waggy rear end.

Depends on your use and how much you want to spend. You said you want to regear but give no indication how much or what type of off roading, if any, you do. If it's used only on the street and perhaps light off roading, stick with what you have and save your money. If you moderate to extreme off road and you pound the crap out of it, you probably should invest in a better set-up.

option #2, That is what I did, cost me a whopping $165 for everything.
