What would that involve? Cutting the brackets and moving them?

Yeah, but without seeing it in person and comparing it to a TJ axle the is no way to tell what it needs.

Gotcha. Something to consider. I think for the same money I'd rather get the 44 from you with the same ratio. But 4.56 is a good excuse to go to 35s

Nah. I still need to check full bump and everything to see how much up travel I'm actually losing. Just eyeballing it, it doesn't look like much. Not enough to actually effect to what I do anyway. I still need to check it to be sure.

Up through the floor?

Be careful not to torque them very tight or else you'll be pulling the double-walled tub together. Using nutserts down there is a much better idea.

What do you consider very tight? The instructions recommended 30-36, we just tightened them with a ratchet until tight.
