D44 or Ford 8.8

The 8.8 is cheap use Search ton of extensive threads on 8.8 swap. You can get a rear for less $200 in most junkyards

That and a regear best money spent in my heep!!!

x3, the 8.8 rears are easier to find and, like jokerchief said, there are tons of threads on the swap.

The dana 30 isn't a bad axle. I'm sure somebody out there with more knowledge than myself can chime in, but you could go with a dana 44 front or a dana 60. From what I understand, there is a fair amount of fabricating required.

If your staying under 35's.. upgrade the shafts in the front 30, rear swap in a ford 8.8 or dana 44.. If going big tires.. then rear 14 bolt, 10.25 ford are very cheap.. front 60 or dana 44 with rcv shafts would live for a while too.

I run 35's on my xj with alloy axles locked.. front HP 30 rear 8.25. Thus upgrade the rear to a ford 8.8 or dana 44, which ever works out better for your budget slap some 4.56's or 4.88's in up grade the front to the better shafts, keep the stock shafts as back up and go have some fun.
