most people will recommend not wasting your money on anything to do with a dana 35. i would agree.

what are you building the jeep for? mud, trails, rocks? gonna drive it to work? etc.

i second not spending money on the 35, other than a regear to 4.88 if you have a 2.5L maybe. That would be the only thing I would do to mine.

I would put the money toward an 8.8 swap, maybe already with an lsd.

You can put an Aussie in the front with no problems. You will be amazed at how much more you can do. I've been running one just up front for years.
