06 (^^^) to answer your question, no, you would not need to buy a new carrier to run the Chromo shafts. You would have to buy new bearings and seals though and press off the tone ring on your OEM shafts to install on the new ones, along with the bearing cage.
Or, buy new tone rings, bearing, seals and bearing cage and use the OEM axles as a set of trail spares.
As for benefit, this is really for peace of mind. The stock axles are good, but going to a 35" tire or larger you'll want the knowledge that the equipment under your rig is as tough as possible. Personally, I'm putting an ARB in along with the chromo axles but that isn't expressly needed.
We still need to find a side gear to send Moser to make sure the splines on the end will be machined correctly.

The words "Titan Swap, cheap, easy, M205, re-gear, quick, coilovers" are not to be spoken in the same sentence.
