Regearing doesn't matter for the strength of the D30, actually the higher the gear the weaker it is as far as breaking.
The thing that will help the D30 is sleeve/gusset or truss and stronger axle shafts. But the gears/R&P will always be weaker in the D30 than the D44 of the rubicon.
Personally I'd go with the Rubicon. Lockers will make your off roading experience a lot better.
