If you just want "an" axle, this is the way to go.
If you want an axle to build on (if you have or plan tires bigger than 33", etc, etc) the Dana 44 out of another TJ is your easiest, cheapest option.
Beyond that, a Ford 8.8 from ECGS is a good option... and it goes up from there.
If you're handy and have the tools (welder, etc) you can get a 44 or 8.8 from another vehicle and fab the mounts yourself. You'll want to make sure it's the 31 spline shafts, not 28 spline, and check the width.
Front and rear gears matching is something to check on all these options.
