Rubicon front axle upgrade to a X Unlimited

Have been thinking about ordering a Rubicon Dana 44 axle for the front of my JK, but I would want to upgrade the axles, and change the ratio. So I have been thinking I might be better off buying a Rubicon axle housing ($699) the outer swivels and brakes on the Dana 30 are the same, so they will swap over, then I can fit upgraded inner axles. Outer splines are the same on the Rubicon as the X so will not have to change hubs. As for a locker go with the Elocker.

Any opinions or ideas?

JK X Unlimited 3.5" RE Long Arm Lift, RE Drivelines, Rugged Ridge 17 x 9 Steel Wheels, 35" Mickey MTZ's, Bushwhacker Flares, 4.10 ratio, Rugged Ridge Front & Rear Bumpers.
