Default '78 CJ Dana 44....steepest gears you can get?

Dad currently has 5.13's in the rear of his '78 CJ5 with a Dana 44. What is the absolute lowest gearing you can get for a 44, and what is the strength/reliability of those gears?

Spicer and Yukon? Don't know never run them, I am sure they are weaker than a higher ratio but by how much no idea.
