    +1 on the ARB...

    The Tummy tuck would also end up needing Adjustable control arms and a new drive shaft. because you'd be looking at almost 7" of total lift on your drive line...

    ARB's are great. I love mine. What I didn't love was the D30. If you're just looking for light offroading and street use then the D30 should be fine. Don't waste your money on the super 30. Either replace the entire axle or just put in an ARB without upgrading the rest of it.

    Go ARB but DO NOT do the Super 30. Have you priced spare shafts on the 30 Spline shatfs? Do you relize they use the same UJoint as regular shafts? Do you relize your R&P are still super thin. I had a S30 and it wa the biggest mistake I ever made jeeping. If you just get CHromo 27 Spline then you can use stock shafts in the case of breakage

    i didnt know any of that i guess i should of did more research. good thing i got you guys to steer me in the right direction but you guys might of created a monster now cause now since i dont need the super 30 that frees up money to fully lock my jeep now and i can look at the ox lockers which i wanted in the first place. damn i thought this was going to be easy. o well life goes on and so will i lmao.

    back to looking for lockers now

    ARB is the way to go. In a front HP D30 up to 35" inch tires you will be good, even with stock shafts.
    http://www.novak-adapt.com/knowledge/np231.htm

    The torque from your transfer case at the output shafts is about 38% in the front and 62% in the back. Thats why lots of people can still run the HP D30 up front with 35" tires.
    Some say you can run up to 37", try picking up a 37" tire on a steel rim compared to a 35" on aluminum rim? unsprung weight? it makes a big difference. 33" tires on factory axles should suffice. Depending on how you wheel.
