I have a rubicon. D44 stock axle right. You know the tubes and c's and knuckles are the same as a d30 right. Well I sleeved and gusseted mine which wasn't much. After 60,000 miles I may have to go to a pro rock.
Now I just spring for a pro rock and swap stuff over. Anything I invested in just swaps over like the gears, rcv's, locker.
Now a D30 you could do the same as myself if you don't blow the gears up. And you would need axles cause stock won't be good enough for 37's. I broke mine. Plus your going to invest in a locker.
Then if fails structurally. Now the locker, gears, and axle shafts can't be used for a pro rock. What will you get to sell those used? Likely not much cause it's for a D30.
Do the smart thing. Put a locker in the rear. Save for a pro rock. Run the front till it dies. Then get the promo I and re gear.
Or get the prorock now.
Your choice. I don't recommend building a d30 due to the axle tubes and c's mainly, and secondly the experience people have had with the gears running bigger tires being a negative one.
