Not sure on axles... I'll let the pros answer!

I like the suspension lifts, keeps your ground clearence higher. As compared to a body lift, your frame stays where it is now leaving a higher chance of getting hung up on something.

The lightbars are all over the net, 4wd.com, jcwhittney, etc... also check ebay and craigslist. Used is your best bet, you can save a ton and sometimes even get your lights with them.

Most important, have patience with getting them. If you think your getting ripped off, wait for the next deal to come around.

Dana 44, Dana 60, ford 8.8, i think these all work and are good axles for your jeep but i may be corrected by someone much smarter then me down the road... go with a suspension lift, body lifts are alright when kept to around an inch but anything more then that gets to be a bit much and suspension lifts give you more of an actual upgrade... and like stated before you can get a light bar from numerous sources and you just need to find a good deal on one you want
There's no replacement for displacement.
