just picked up some yukon one piece shafts, detroit locker, 4.56 gearing, and d30 alloy shafts with bigger ujoints. i'm hoping 35" tires will be ok with this. probably BFG's or MTR's. don't bug me too much for staying with the d30. any thoughts on this?

sorry, it's an 85 cj7. you guys are a little more hard core than me so i think i'll just have to try it, break it and learn from experience

sounds alright, just don't abuse the skinny pedal. I ran my 35 boggers for years broke one rear axle, three or four front axles. Keep your old ones or get a spare set and keep 'em with you.

by upgrading the axles to alloy's inthe d30 you change the weak linkn from the axle and u joint to the pinion and carrier. should consider upgrading the carrier to adetroit or something like that. check this link on pirate4x4 ther is some more info there. also Jp magazine did a d30 article a few issues back and that has some good info.
