Dana 35 repair?

Ok so I went mudding last weekend the jeep was running good for a few days after that. A few days ago I noticed a grinding noise coming from the rear diff. Didn't think to much abou it at the time. Last nite I pull out of my drive way n get about 50 feet n the rear wheels just locked up. Got it back in the drive way pulled off the diff cover n it was just gunk like the consistency of toothpaste. So I knew my pinnion seal was bad my question is I noticed like scar marks on the carrier from the pinnion. My plan is to thoughly clean all the crap out n put fresh gear oil in but am looking at a bigger issue than just the seal. I mean what caused the pinnion to make contact with the carrier. I check the pinnion gear n it's not damaged to bad.

Its gone. Don't even think about the thousand dollars to repair it. You can replace it with another Dana 35 or fine a 8.8 if you plan on abusing the axle in the mud again.

Yea im probably gonna go with the 8.8 since I will be putting a v8 with a turbo 400 in later this year. Still haven't decided if I'm gonna keep my NP231

Might wanna do a hybrid 231c/j case. It'll make compatibility issues a lot easier to deal with.

8.8, the best repair part/upgrade developed for the -35.

Ok so I already have a cv driveshaft so I'm gonna go ahead n get the adapter flange for the 8.8 but what about brakes? Just run a new line from cylinder? Just curious how everyone else routed there's.

I can't see why you couldn't just replace the flexible line that runs from the hard line to the axle.

There's an 8.8 in mine, and I used the stock 1999 ford flex line.
