Default Hp dana 44 swap

Hey guys, so I have the stock axles on my 99 xj (dana 30/ c8.25). My stepdad has a 2008 rubicon unlimited, and he's putting dana 60's on his rig, so he offered me his stock hp dana 44's. So any suggestion on what I should run wheel and gear wise? The ones on the axle are an 18" wheel on 33". Should I keep the 18" and move upto a 35" m/t?

Gussets, Sleeves and/or Truss should be added to the front axle before you install it.
