You can get an 8.8, but you then have to set pinion angles and weld perches, rework brake lines, rework the parking brake, and weld your shock mounts. You also have to adapt your driveshaft to flange mount. You might get a complete rearend for $2-300, but you'll have $750 in it before you know it.
The 8.8 is the way to go though if you are building up.
good luck finding a stock 89 yj with a 4.0L
