Here's friendly advice. Take it for what it's worth.
You live in Norton, VA. That's close to Harlan, which is one of my wheeling areas. I know the terrain down there and what works and what doesn't.
You plan on running 38's, but you're not wanting to cut much. That's going to require a lot of lift. I understand that.
You're planning on running 38's. You have a low pinion Dana 30 and a Dana 35. You want to upgrade those axles with chromo shafts. I understand that.
Place some kind of tall narrow object on a table. Try to tip it over and see how easy it is. Now take an object that is the same height, but has a wider base. See how easy it is to tip over. A bit more difficult, right?
Now, take what you're considering: Stock upgraded axles with a narrow WMS. A really tall lift and combining it narrow axles will not work where you live. Not if you're hitting the boulders. For the down south mud bogger guys, this works just fine. For off camber wheeling, you're going to get peeled off the bottom of a mountainside cliff. The taller you go, the wider you need to go to offset it.
A low pinion TJ Dana 30, even with chromo shafts, is not going to hold up for long to 38" tires. Especially with 4.88 gears. Low pinion you're running on the weak side of the gear set. Your axle shafts may hold up and maybe even your u-joints if you're not a throttle jockey, but your gears will grenade sooner rather than later. An upgraded D35 will not handle 38s. A Ford 8.8 will, but it's a slightly more narrow axle than your stock one, which leads back to issue one.
If this is your daily driver and you can't afford for it to be down more than a weekend to put a lift on it, then you definitely won't be able to handle it being totaled when it rolls or breaks. There's some good advice in this thread. Be open to it.
