What do I need to regear?
*Dana 35 carriers are different 93 and eariler, than 93 and later Jeeps.
The pinion shrinks in size as your gear ratio goes numerically higher, so the ring gear needs to be physically moved closer to ensure proper mesh. This is why you need different carriers, the carrier actually moves the ring gear closer or farther away to compensate for changes in pinion sizes.
As far as parts goes, carriers (when needed), ring and pinion, install kit, and a new speedo gear are needed to regear your axles. [URL=http://bbb.quadratec.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=4;t=000643]This post will help explain gear setup basics.
Now before you jump into decideing to regear your Jeep yourself, you'd better do lots of research, regearing isn't for everyone, and requires various special tools.
