Ford ranger gears and axle installation kit?

I am going to be buying 4.88 gears for my 1997 ford ranger 4.0. I know the front axle is reverse rotation but I just wanted to double check if these are the right gears and if there are any installation kits anyone would recommend or if these would work. I have the 27 spline dana 35 ttb in the front and 28 spline 8.8 rear. I would also like to know if anyone knows good lookers for these axles for a good price. I was thinking powertrax lock-right lockers.

Everything seems good to me, I'd go with the upgraded Timken bearings for the front kit. Also, depending on if you plan on being off road most of the time, you may consider getting a limited slip differential for the rear rather than the auto locker. They aren't all that great as far as road manners from what I've heard. But if you feel that you'd rather have an auto locker, I haven't heard a bad thing about the lock right. Good luck on the swap.
