I can't wait. I'm just not sure what I should have them do to my front d30 axle for strength. If anything.

You could have them Gusset the C's and run sleeves or a Truss and install chromoly shafts or RCV's. At the very least have them upgrade the u-joints in your stock shafts. I'd also have them check your ball joints, I replaced mine when I gusseted and trussed the front, didn't think they were bad...new ones made a huge difference!

I mentioned the ball joints and they said they can do it but don't recommend doing it if stock 1s are still good. They do check them and will let me know. They said they can do the c's but sleeves are tough on a jeep that's been off road cause a lot of times the axles are not totally straight.

That's why I went with the Artec Truss w/ JJ UCA mounts, so I didn't have to deal with a potentially not perfectly straight housing. My upper Ball joints were solid, the lowers showed wear.

I guess I'll just wait till she's under the knife in 2 weeks and see what they suggest.

Congrats!
Definitely beef up that front if you plan to wheel. Lots of weight to spin now, Sin knows what he's saying. What programmer are you getting?
