Dana 35 axle question
heres the question. I know the "turdy five" is a pretty weak axle as far as that goes. Im not running large (31" and keeping them) tires, would a super 35 kit with an ARB locker installed be a good investment? From what I have been reading, the weak points are the shafts and the carriers. Looks like the super kits have both ends covered with the better chromoly shafts and the carriers covered by replacing with a known strong component (arb locker) am I right? or am I missing some minute engineering flaw in the design? I really dont want to do a swap, unless I find a totalled Rubi, then Im yanking the complete drivetrain of course, but thats a slim to none find, especially on a Sailors paycheck.
Some obstacles can not be moved, those you have to either- 1)go around, 2)go over 3)go under, or 4) my personal favorite, blow the heck up and go through the rubble!
