A d44a with a BTF cover and a spartan regeared to 4.56. How much abuse can that handle? 33's and some abuse?

33's shouldn't be an issue. A trussed 44a could handle 35's max. Maybe bigger with some upgraded shafts. The tubes are the weak point.

It sucks that I already bought my iro 5.5" critical path long arm kit....for the lpd30. So a truss and sleeving axle tubes help? Can I buy arb carrier to upgrade to 30 spline shafts?

Your problem isnt so much the axle strength on a d30. Once you get up to 35's or there about you start putting a lot of stress on ball/u joints. Axle sleeves wouldnt do anything for you in that department unfortunately

I probably will never go over 33" tires. With that in mind could it hold up?

Well I just had a conversation with IRO. They are willing to take back my iron y for the lpd30 in exchange for high pinion one. My next question is the hpd30 up to the task of 35" tires. Truss, weld in axle tubes, weld in axle sleeves and 30 spline upgrade.

You can run an hp 30 semi comfortably with 35's. Thats what Im putting in mine this summer. Its the cheapest and easiest route.

What year should I be specifically looking for? Without vaccuum disconnect? Abs issues? Same width too?
