How do the Dana 30 axles hold up? I just recently purchased another xj I plan on building. So I want to go up a couple tire sizes.

This one has aftermarket shafts, chromoly, in the front D30 and I have a lot of restraint on the skinny pedal, so I have not had a break. I am sure it could be easily done by some of my more aggressive buddies. I can tell you that I don't shy away from any obstacle, but I also don't think more power is always the solution to a traction problem. The automatic tranny is a big help, very forgiving when a tire is stuck in rocks. I have seen 33's on Dana 44 break an axle shaft at 1500 rpm when a tire could not turn. So, if you are running a manual transmission and you like to apply the power, swap out to a Dana 44 for the front also.

I have an automatic trans and 4:56 gears. Most of my wheeling is at the Rubicon, slick rock, bear valley area. I have broken a stub shaft when my locker didn't disengage with 33s. So maybe ill upgrade the shafts. Whats the price range on chromos ?
