here is a write up to help you make a more educated decision on your rear done by four wheeler magazine its not anything i said its found on the internet

and i still say go with the d30 front, almost every jeep that i wheel with is running either the cj or wrangler 30 front and i know of at least 5 with v8s and no they dont break them every time they go out, they dont break so that is all i have to say about that
this is the money wise opinion ya sure you could go to tons but i dont see any need to especially since your axles already have lockers in them anyway
Over builders? For the terrain & trails my friends & I (and many of the people here) run, 20's & 30's don't last. In another thread aren't you and your buddy trying to sell reptile stuff off of blown up AMC 20 & Dana 30 axles??? If they are so great why did they blow up? Why are there tons of parts all over from blown up 20 & 30 axles? I know why, because AMC 20's & Dana 30's are junk. More so when you get into the 35" and up tire range. Weld the tube to the center of a 20 and you just end up with a bent tube welded to a paper weight. Add the cost of a truss & labor and you will have more into 20 than a 44. In one of my Jeeps I only have $1400 into two narrowed Dana 44's, Moser alloys all around, 4w disc, Detroit lockers & 4:88's. The shafts were the only new parts.

And as for Four Wheeler's article Go cheap ($) and hope it's as strong is a build approach I'll pass on. As an aside, I see from the article that I have 15 years more experience than Tri County Gear at setting up and narrowing Jeep axles
