Ha I like that idea I just ordered a new flip screen head unit for it cause the stocker has seen better days. I'm weighing out axle options to any suggestions

cheap and easy would be variloks. especially if you got 3.73's already you could just swap the rear.
but then your limited when it comes time for real lockers, if you ever want to go that route.
the aluminium 44 is weaker unless trussed/braced.
Im doing variloks becuase the wife uses the wj as a DD and no way would i trust her with an aussie with a maine winter... my jeep would be in 3 different ditches on the drive home from work.
Paid $500 for a jeep with no engine with quadra drive, sold off a bunch of random stuff that came on the jeep made all but $70 bux back so far. $35 for a varlok axle is pretty damn cheap
not that anyone else will get that lucky but, you never know

When looking at axle options it ultimately depends on what type of terrain you're heading for.

Why don't you do a 60 in the front and a shaved/mohawked 14bolt in the rear? If you haven't raised your gas tank then there is something for you to do.

I just saw you had 4" of lift...you doing an LCOG build or what? A 60 is heavy enough to run 37" tires but your lift isn't enough for 35's...not sure where you're going with your build so my opinion is useless.
