Narrow-track Wagoneer axles are pretty popular. They're widely available, relatively cheap, and pretty close to the right width, though I don't know exactly how wide off the top of my head.

You might have to keep an eye out for a bit. They're out there. Make sure you get one with the differential on the proper side, or you'll have to change the transfer case. Scout axles will also work, but they're much harder to find than the Waggy ones.

I don't know where you're located, but I got one once from a Jeep-only junkyard near Sacramento (J&W Jeep). They have anything you could need.

As far as gears go, 4.56 or 4.88 would probably be pretty good all-around with 35s and an overdrive transmission.

I think any second generation Dakota rear springs will work. I'm running full-size Chevy lift springs, front and rear (47" front, 52" rear) with one front leaf removed and the bottom overload leaf removed from the rear.

Yup, run those on the front. I think the pin offset is too much for the rear unless you want to stretch your wheelbase. The stock springs will work fine in the rear if you put them over the axle and keep the front height reasonable. Or you can use 52" full-size Chevy springs, which I believe will move the rear axle back one or two inches.
