upgrading to 4:88

Hi,
I'm driving TJ se 1997. I think I have 4.11 Axle ratio but I want to go down to 4:88. The thing is I have ARB airlock in the rear, and someone told me that because of that I might have to change the casing on the drive. so, I understand that with some ratios that's the case. can anyone tell me if this is right or wrong ?

thanx guys!

Your setup will be fine with 4.88's. However locking your stock D35 is a big mistake. It is a breakage looking for a place to happen.

2007, 4 door, powered by a minivan engine, locked and riding on 35's.

thanx for your reply.
well I dont think the usage of my jeep is traditional, as I dont use it on "trails" and rock climbing, but in snow and in ice on glaciers.

The snow and ice is much more "forgiving" (softer), and there for I dont think I will break the D35... if it will happen, I will probably upgrade to D44.

well thanx again,
