In need do a complete d30 w/ 3.55s

Well guys the wife's jeep for whatever reason started having a nasty *** growl in the d30. Find out bearings are toasted, and metal glitter in the oil. Scrap that d30 & grab 1 off craigslist claiming to have 3.55s...turns out it soundly 3.07.
I bolted it in, bled the brakes. Ready to rock. Wife says did you check the fluid...pull the cover drain it and check the r&p. Find out it soundly 3.07

More pissed I did all the work to find out the mismatch gears. Glad I didn't run a transfercase though.

Does anyone have one kicking around that's in runnable condition? I can swap on knuckles, brakes ect no worry just need matching gears. I was hoping a local would be willing to do a straight swap..maybe you've got a spare? One to build ect? Maybe know a dismantling shop that'd be wiling to swap my 3.07 d30 for a 3.55?

Its a 3.07 high pinion d30 non disco. I NEED a 3.55 non disco. I'm even willing to take a low pinion.

Got lucky and a local jeeper who owned a xj still had a d30/c8.25. Guess he swapped in built axles at some point. But he gave me the complete caliper to caliper d30 for 40 bucks
Super stoked. Gonna gusset the c's, custom lower shock mounts, mini truss & control arm skids before I goes in.
