I would offer him $100 for the 30 if that is the one you are looking at. However it is a good deal for all. I would expect them to last long at that price.

Looking at your profile you should have 4.11's currently. If you use the 14 bolt you'll be going to full width axles. The D44 is a low pinion and is also full width. If you go to full width you need to look a how you plan to install the axles (outboarding springs, etc.) and understand it's alot of work. Are you wanting to go full width? Change to what gearing? The axles you show are all 4.10.

If you want to stay with standard width axles and depending on your wheeling style you might look into a D30 and 8.8 with 4.10's. The 4 cylinder YJs had 4.10 gearing and are cheap to buy and the 8.8's can be found with 4.10's. If you plan to use the jeep as a DD you can find an 8.8 with a posi-traction (A D2 if my memory serves me right). Cromoly axles in the D30 and you can have a fairly capable rig. You also need to understand lockers depending on what you want to do. A front locker axle driven on a daily basis will drive differently. Everyone here will have a different opinion but I think a D30 with solid axles and a selectable locker is a great combination. You'll spend more on the locker but the highway driving is much better.
