Any interest in a 30sp front arb for rubicons?

I spoke with the techs at arb to confirm this is possible, since arb does not make a front 30 spline locker for rubicons.

I have an rd117 (30sp "reg" d44 locker) in the rear of my jeep. I also have a brand new rd157 (35sp rubicon replacement locker) sitting here I can no longer use due to a project change.

I want 35sp rear shafts. if I swap the inner gears from one to the other, I have a 35sp rear for me and a 30sp front for someone else.

Before I do so though, I'm just trying to judge opinion if this would even be a desirable option for someone with a rubi front d44. IMO someone whose locker has failed/is failing that already has chromo axles would think this is a great option vs the elocker.

If my rubi locker went out I would be interested... but that would need to happen first.

Why not just sell it as a rear locker?
