I have a YJ dana30 at my house right now with 4.10s and an ARB locker. I don't think I will use the gears so you can have them because I only want the locker. Oh and I got it for $100

that or maybe ill shorten my lowers and run another front cv shaft while i build up the hp 30 so i can atleast have 4wd in the winter
Sounds exactly like what I'm going through right now.
