Maybe a front axle swap in the future.

Which one to go with im going to swap the rear for an 8.8 and it leaves me with a d30 up front sounds weak to me. I'm just wondering what an easy upgrade would be and out of what jeep would it come from. i hope i can trade explorer parts for jeep parts.

HP30 from a Cherokee. I went with one from a 96. That year and up came with 44 u joints. And the high pinion is 30% stronger because of the reverse gearing.

If you want to do something really usefull then lock the 8.8 and throw some alloy shafts in your front axle.
