need 3.0 ratio front axle

i'm swapping out my model 20 rear axle for a ford 9 inch w/ a 3.00 ratio. Does anyone know where i might look for the same gearing ratio to put ina model 30 front axle for an '85 cj7?

Re: need 3.0 ratio front axle

Why?!!!! You would be lucky to make it to the grocery store and back with 3.00 gear ratio. Just find a front axle with a decent ratio like 3.73 or 4.10, and change the rear gears in the 9-inch. That is a street ratio if I ever heard of one. There are a ton of ratios for the 9-inch available you could go to the salvage yard and come up with a half dozen better ratios than 3.0.
