i run rustys and am pleased. i believe 4jeepn was quite pleased with his also.
i really don't think it matters what order. just remember that the dana 44's driveshaft is shorter so when you put the lift on or when you put the axle in (depending on the order) you may have vibes. or you may have them just with the BB so you may need a sye and cv. other than that i don't think it matters what you do first. if you DO get an sye and cv you'll have to do the lift first. chances are pretty good that you could have vibes so i'd do- lift, then axle with cv and sye, and then tires.
