Do they make Dana 30 Thick cut gears??

I have a Dana 30 Locker available out of a D30 with 3.55 gears and I want to run 4.88s. Do they make thick cut gears for the Dana 30 so that I can use the smaller Locker/carrier still?
thanks

I have never seen them for the TJ D30 and I have looked many times over the last 10 years or so.

Hmmm, does this mean I can re-gear my 2000 TJ without replacing the carrier up front? Gonna have to look and see if one is avaliable for the 35 as well! That would save me a TON of $$ that I just don't have!
