The only person who would want to buy a dana 30 would be someone who broke one. I could barely give mine away.

Before you get down...I just sold a pair for $750 out of my sport. Granted mine had 3.73s and a factory posi (or whatever its called), but they still sold. Heres what theyre good for - CJs, XJs, ZJs

Details for fuel when people come over::

The guys who have earlier year XJs. They came with whats called a Dana 30 CAD (Center Axle Disconnect). It might just be the worst axle ever put in the front of a jeep. It has a vacuum actuated shift fork to put it into 4x4. The long side tube is two piece and not very strong. Later year XJs still didnt have ideal axles because they have smaller u joints in their axles. Unit bearings (hubs) cause the driveshaft to always spin even when not in 4x4. This puts a lot of miles on that shaft. The latest XJs were low pinion...big said. A JK 30 is dramatically better than all 3 especially if you truss it.

For the rear the XJs had 35s or the Chrysler 8.25 both of which were turds. Some had C-clip axles. All had smaller axle tubes and weak 27-spline axle shafts. The JK 44 is a dramatic improvement in all regards.

Not to bore everyone...most Jeep ZJs has shit axles too. Rear was either a 35 or an aluminum centered 44. Fronts were 30s.

Youre looking for a specific buyer though. You have to be patient, price then right and work the price down. If you dont have 3.73s (most have 3.42s I think) you may not get as much but Id still expect you could get $500 for the pair if you sell them loaded.

Good luck.

Matt

I sold my rear JK axle to a TJ guy.
I sold my front Dana 30 to a JK guy who bent his stock one and was going to "build" this one up.
This was 4 years ago.... $1500 total.

3.21 geared are pretty cheaply had. Front/rear $500ish together. You can get more if 3.73 or 4.10 ratio.

If they were a bit more narrow I would make a go throwing a set under the tj.
