Gearing upgrade on a 90 xj limited

Hey I need some help I want to upgrade my d35s to a Dana 40 or 44?? Can I just rebuild the diffs and if so what would I need gearing wise or would it be easier to just do axle swaps?

You need to replace the entire rear axle assembly. Look for a D44 from a cherokee. They were original in the "Metric Ton" XJ's. Typically only 87-89.

Ok thanks for the help, now if I do the rear will I need to make the front the same gearing as well? Or can it be different?
