Spring Project: D30 vs D44.
Ok, finally giving up the ghost and going to upgrade Thor's drivetrain. The rear diff has so much play and is so worn, it needs replacement, so I will do everything at the same time. I have the amc20 in the rear with full-floaters, which I intend to keep and just truss the 20. I intend on going 4.56 with ARB front and rear. I will split my questions into several posts, one per issue.
D30 vs. D44:
As this point I use the jeep for light-medium duty off road. Primarily trails, though would like to visit the rubicon though not the hardest stuff.
I spoke to a few people that say the D30 isn't as bad as I thought. I was interested in swapping in the d44 front, since I am doing all the re-gearing etc. What are your opinons, and if the D44 is the way to go, what is a good donor for 85 Cj7? BTW: I run 31" figuring on a SOA during summer eventually 33".
