could i match up a rear axle with a ratio of 3.54 to a front axle with 3.55?
i have the np231 t-case
a local guy is parting out a 88 xj and i'm crossing my fingers that it has a d44.
in 88 d44's were geared with 3.07, 3.54, and 3.55 according to car-part.com

Those ratios will match up fine! I don't think XJ's came with 3.54's, but it wouldn't matter anyway. I have found that site to not always be accurate! Older Jeeps did come with 3.54's. My CJ and J10 are both equipped with those gears.

Yes, you'll routinely discover that the ratios don't match exactly, like 3.54/3.55, 4.10/4.11.
