Also a master rebuild kit.

FYI>   5.38 for Dana 30 will be especially hard to come by in used condition. 
To my knowledge th e 5.38 ratio was never a standard for any vehicles using Dana 30 axles.
And so any gear sets that you do find will be aftermarket and not Dana Spicer.

Thank you for the information.  I thought I would ask before I pull the trigger and buy new.

Because the D-30 actually has a smaller R&P  then the 25 and 27, I am looking at buying either a G2 or Yukon  set up for added strength. IS IT NEEDED?  probably not but I hate breaking stull so I'm inclined to pay more for peace of mind.  If I can buy a used Spicer set,  I will have it deep freezed " to add 40% more strength.  "cryogenics"   May to this process to any R&P I get.

While changing out the R&P, I will also install a Spartan locker as well.

I am also looking at the G2 or Yukon r&p. I am also installing a Spartan I picked up this past weekend. A lot of similarities here.
