Rubicon's use the thick ring gear with there lockers, You could also use thick ring gears if you did not want to change your carriers out. Say you had a detroit or something expensive already installed.

The bearings are probably fine, but you could very easily damage them while swaping them on and off. Also, if you don't have shim's laying around, you would need the shim packs that come with the install kits. You will need a new pinion seal regardless.

I am not sure off hand on this, I imagine someone has documented there installs. You are pretty capable of tear axles apart, so you really just need to learn how to check patterns and get measurements. Sodapop has a nice post in the jeep section about his gear install.
