my other question, do I have to get a different front diff case for the 4.88's to fit?  I read that the front case for the stock 3.21's can't fit higher ratios.
Yes, you will need a front carrier, 3.92 and up, and you will need master install kits.

Just to confirm.. when you say "carrier" you're referring to the whole front differential housing, right?
No, just the internal carrier, don't need the housing, it all still fits

I'm surprised you didn't mention it's also the perfect time to put in a locker instead of buying a replacement carrier.   Slap  If you're having someone do the regear for you, the labor should be the same or maybe a little higher if they drill a hole for the air or electric line.

Carrier and spider gears (new) about $150 maybe, locker $600 to $800 minus the ($150)?

If you need a new carrier that's the preferred method. Any selectable in the front is good.

It is the perfect time to do a locker.  The carrier is $78 from my distributor, you can reuse the stock spider gears.

And a good selectable locker will run you 600-800, that is correct.  ARB and Yukon Zip are fine air lockers.  I'm preferential to air lockers though.
