Rubicon transfer case vs a Dana 30?

So I just picked up a Rubi case with the 4:1. I run a Dana 30/44 with 4:56s. Chromo's front and rear. 30 spline front and rear. ARB lockers front and rear.

My question is do you guys think the axles can handle the low end torque that the 4:1 is going to produce? I'm kind of worried about my 30 exploding the r&p or maybe even the 44 r&p

I've looked around online but I can't seem to find anybody running a d30 with the 241or

Opinions?

A Rubi t-case is not the only way to get 4:1 or better, and they all work fine. Tire size effects axle longevity way more than the motor side. Yes it will be fine.

If you had a Dana 35 rear, well then you will be in trouble.

I have a the Rock Track 241 Rubicon Transfercase 4:1 in my 91 YJ with Dana 44 rear and the 30 front with one piece Chromo's and the Warn locking hubs, lockers front and rear with 4:11 gears, 33" tires and its SOLID!

The weak link is the Dana 30 hear but only if you get over the 35' tire size, some would say the 35". Without the Chromo's axels forget it though.
