well you have a 95 with the 4.0 which means you should have the 8.8 rear now. which is good, so now youll need to have some one re gear the axle to 4.56 or 4.88 both are good for 35s.

oh and theres no cheapest way of doing this. its not cheap

You certainly should not switch what you have for a 2.3 4 cyl rear end. Just re-gear what you have. The 4 cyl rear end is too weak for the 4L engine.
