Mine is not in a TJ but rather a YJ, on 36's and it handles them fine, its got 4.88s and wheels great...the issue when those of you are bring up Super 88 and laughing at 37s is the fact that your D30 be it LP or HP will be laughing at you... I have no doubt with a Super 88 kit that 40's would be do-able... however the 30 wont do it. I'm hard on mine, even being geared, i will still get on it, however I'm only throwing 4 squirrel power to it. And I do not think I understand the need for the C-clip eliminator kit, because with Disk Brakes, the shaft aint gonna walk out like breaking a Turdy five... However I'm not planning to go larger than 37's, and prefer the 36's as they measure 36.8 on my rims.
And those talking bout ECGS my friend ordered a axle from them, great service.... they have a thread about the bolt in 8.8s in the vendor section on here, and you will see many satisfied customers, and if something isn't right, Chase will make it right.
D30 FRONT/1996 EXPLORER 8.8 DISC BRAKE REAR. I INSTALLED SUPERIOR 4.88's, AMSOIL,SOLID DIFF COVER, ALL NEW SEALS, M.O.R.E. BRACKETS AND E-BRAKE KIT. I'M RUNNING 1.5" SPACERS WITH 15X8 CRAWLERS THAT HAVE A 4.5 BACKSPACE ON 35X12.50X15 BFG KM2's. I BOUGHT EVERYTHING NEEDED TO CONNECT THE DS/YOKE ALL AT FORD. I DIDN'T HAVE TO CHANGE A THING FOR THE BRAKED EITHER. SOME SAY YOU NEED TO PUT A DIFFRENT PRAPORTIONING VALVE OFF A RUBI BUT THE STOCK ON WORKS GREAT. I CAN DAMN NEAR LOCK THEM UP THE WAY IT IS NOW WITH RAYBESTOS ROTORS AND SEMI-METALLIC PADS.

Heres my 2001 Tj with amy 8.8 with 3.73s lsd disk brakes. Jeep has 2.5 RC lift and 32" MTR kevlars. No other good action pics, has been through a lot though and it performs great really worth the effort and money.
