88 yj came with dana 30 front has a round shaped diff,,, rear came with dana 35 90%of the time diff shape is almost like a circle or oval if it was a better model yj, than might have dana 44 in rear and it is shaped alot like a stop sign...... but if you are going tobe running that 360 and larger tire than all are no good for ya , as they are to small

If your lookin to upgrade the axle you could find ones outa a GrandWaggoner....they are D44's frotn and back....I'd just make sure that they are Drivers side drop(I think they were from 79-85 or whenever they stoped makin them)
Should be a realitively easy install
Just new perches (doin the SOA thing)
Drop Pitman(get a stock ZJ Pitman arm...they are 2"s longer than YJ)
Some longer shocks(shocks for a 6" lift YJ)
You no need no stinkin track bar...get rid of that...lol(or make a bracket that raises it..lol)
O and some longer flex lines for the brakes(or be cheap like me and extend you hard brake lines...lol)
And you'll have about 4-5 inches of lift right there...plus your 2" shackle lift....then you could thow some 35's on it and away ya go

As for diff identification
Here's a handy linky I've seen
