? For off road

I will be moving down there in June and was wondering what is around ft Carson for trails, where is a good place to get parts down there, and lastly if there are any passes, permits that are required for the area
Hopefully I get to meet some of you guys when I show up

You guys forget... On a jk the front axle d30 or d44 share every part but the center section and axle shafts. Other than that they are identical. Same tube size, same hub bearing, same knuckle, same ball joints, same c-knuckle.
But ya, you are flirting with having a pinion failure or axle shaft breakage. Not to mention the usual jk axle bend

HOW you wheel plays a huge role in whether things break. Sure sometimes things "just" break but if you're heavy on the skinny pedal or "show off" you're more likely to have damage.

A buddy has been running 37's on D30 chromoly shafts for years without issues. As mentioned, proper armor, skids, dif covers also keep damage down. Look at RCV shafts too.
Welcome to CO! I'm sure we see you on some trails!
