    thats why most people suggest one tons. the price difference is negligible. and you can get tons with 4.10s stock

    I have made up my mind and ordered all the stuff to complete the wj knuckle swap, tie rod flip, 4.56 gears and locker for the front (rear is already). Im just gonna hammer it until I get sick of beaking it. then I might go bigger.... thanks for all your input guys.

    38s are way too big for a d30. your wasting your money. save a bit more and do it the right way the frist time.

    Keeping the stock back spacing with H1s will bring up other clearance problems.
    Most hit the Tie-rod at the stock mounting point on the knuckle for one.

    Good choice...IMHO.
    If those "Waggy" axles came out of a p/u, they are going to be wider than actual Wagoneer axles. Plus, all the previously mentioned details........

    Well, that's what was mentioned in the 1st post, but they were still being referred to as Waggy's.
    Yes, the same Jeep style axles, but not the same width. Every inch counts (least that's what SHE tells me!)

    I am going to keep my eyes out for a hp 44 from an old ford. n run the 30 for now. I have less than 500 bucks in gears, locker and wj swap... so why not right? prob going to run 37" trxus mts. my buddy has been running 38 tsls on a d30 for 2 years now. no probs. and it is the disco housing and shafts. n he doesnt baby it. prob has to do with the muddy logging roads we moslty wheel on...

    I run the same thing in my YJ...a narrowed HP HD 44 from a 79 F150 Supercab. They have the heavier .500 wall axle tubes. You have 2 good choices to narrow to and not have to use custom inner axle shafts. Wagoneer width which gives you a 60 inch WMS-WMS or you can run Rubicon inner shafts which will give you 62.5 inch WMS-WMS. Going with off the shelf shafts keeps the cost down and replacements are easier.

    You can have them cut down and splined to match whatever size you narrow to. Mitchel Diferential in Shrewsbury Mass is who I have used in the past for stuff like that.

    I know that guy,, I think he is trying to blow up the disco shafts before he swaps to the TJ one piece ones. Just won't die for some reason though

    I realize the d30 isn't ideal, but everything up here is covered in slime and snot. I would like to do a 44, but anything junkyard will have a bolt pattern change and I will lose all my current steering/brake upgrades.
    The BDS TJ that runs petersons ultimate adventure is running 37 inch MTR's with a HP30 and an 8.8 with chromo's and a few other upgrades. Sure he brakes once and awhile, but everyone does.

    I am not worried about blowing up shafts, they are easy to change and I carry spares. When I get sick of the snap crackle po noises, I'll save for a bolt in style 44 that will accept my wj knuckle swap etc.
