In the front it's a D30.

For the 89, you most likely have a D35 in the rear, but it is possible that it has a D44. It's easy to tell since they look completley different.

As far as what trimming is needed, it depends on the backspace of the wheels you choose. That will determine how far the tires stick out. Even then, you won't really know until the lift and tires are on.

If you need flares, you can check out Bushwackers, although they are a bit expensive. Another option is to visit a local boneyard and find a TJ or YJ and just use the flares off one of those. There's tons of writeups on doing that.
