YJ Ford 8.8 swap questions

dear list friends:
I just started buying the parts for my YJ rockcrawler !!
I have bought a NEW Ford 8.8 rear with 3.73 gears and limited slip. I have some questions:

1.- I want to install a 4:88 gear set on the Ford 8.8 AND my D30 front. Where can I buy the 4:88 gears for both axles ? Any special quality comments ? Are all gear manufacturers the same ?
2,. The axle is 59,5 inches wide with the disks. Where can I buy a set of spacers to make the extra half inch I need?
3,. Any other recommendations for my Ford 8.8 ? Now is the time to make modifications !!
4.- Any comments on a WARN d30 kit for my front D30?
