Waste of money. Save what you'd burn and regear. That's the only thing that will help you regain some of the power you lost with the tires....

whoever told you that doesn't know jack sheet about gasoline.

regear to 4.88s at least. much smarter way to spend your money.

Waste of money if you are using premium gas. You can get both axles re geared for around $1100 to $1300.

Besides our Jeeps aren't meant to run on higher octane fuel

$1000-1600 is common range, depending on area and labor rates charged.

when you regear, that is a good time to install lockers or LSD since you'll save a bunch on labor.

I may be a bit weary of locking the rear if you have the d35, especially if you are running 35 inch tires.
