Im usually pretty lucky and did not give much thought till I joined this site. I plan on getting an 8.8 soon.
My soul is quivering in fear for you man. haha. I get nervous with my 33s. I can't imagine the general badassery that are 35s on my stock time bomb. Kudos to you for living in the danger zone. *insert Kenny Loggins here

Not much motion in the ocean, but I'm the captain.

I've run 33s on a stock D35 and never had a problem, but I'm also a finesse driver and not heavy on the right foot. I was going to go to a 8.8 for my YJ build, but came across a smokin deal on a Super 35 with 4.88 gears and Detroit with the matching front D30 with 4.88 gears and Lockrite that were pulled from a YJ when the frame broke. For $400 for the set I couldn't pass it up.

I drove 33x13.5 for a few years, until my pinion sheared...

Like our government says, never waste a good tragedy. I got an 8.8 and went up to 35s.

I knew it would be inevitable, so I was ready when it was going to happen. Also, I cannot see spending ANY money on a Dana35. Even after super-ing it, truss-ing it, etc. etc. You still have a Dana35. My 8.8 was less than $750 installed (without a locker) and is stronger than a Dana44.

AND it looks sexy as hell.

I completely agree. I'm still planning a 8.8 or fullsize axle swap in the future since I still have a D35, even if it is a Super 35. I just couldn't pass up a pair of axles with 4.88 gears and lockers for $400, ready to bolt in. I'm not going bigger than 35s so hopefully it will last for a little while.
