I'm considering installing an 8.8 in my tj and was curious to see what front axle setups are being used in conjuction with their 8.8?

Nothing wrong with your D30; if it weren't for the 42RLE I'm running, I'd be installing an HP D30 along with my 8.8. Instead I'll be looking for a good deal on something that can run gears lower than 4.88.

Wrong again, the JK D30s do have a kit for 5.13. Certainly don't recommend it, but it's definitely doable.

I too have heard of the elusive 5.13 for d30 kit. I've never seen one though. From what I understand the teeth are very small on the gears which makes them weak and failure prone under stress.
