I think you should be ok with the Dana 30.

depends. if you plan on stepping up to a 35" tire a D44 could be very justifiable. but chopping it short? no. the waggy comes in pretty close width to stock axles. or run a ford 44 8.8/9" and run a 5" back space wheel

the D30 can handle 35's. a front and rear axle swap is a whole new can of worms anyway
