a nice gear for that size tire would be 4:88. It will help push those tires down and the road and will help off the road as well. Lockers are a very important thing to have. I would recommend the arb air lockers because with some of the other types of lockers you can't choose when and where you need the extra help from the locker. Being able to disengage your locker will not only save you money but it will help you make sharper turns on the trail.

I'm using 4.88's with the same tire size and I would not gear any higher.
I believe 4.88 is as low you can go with a d30.
If you are using the stock axels, I would use an Aussie type locker.
