rear 35 to front 35

I'm thinking about putting a Dana 44 in the rear after i get the new engine in, could I reuse the D35 for the front if I got a different axle housing or no? It might not even save me any money, I don't know, that's why i posted this question. Thanks in advance.

There is no such thing as a stock Dana 35 front axle. Sure, you could make one, but I see *no* benefits in doing this... and if you're looking to save money, I can tell you this is not the way! It would be relatively expensive (even if you had the tools/knowledge to do yourself) to make a D35 into a front axle.
I should also add many consider the stock D30 to be stronger and more reliable than the D35... way replace it with something weaker. If you wanna replace the front, look to a D44... matching front/rear D44s isn't a bad combo.

Yup, could be done. You would have to shorten the drivers side and lengthen the passenger side tubes to get the diff in the correct place. You'd end up robbing knuckles (not to mention all the outers) from some other front axle (D30 or maybe D44). And of course, custom shafts. So when you're done, you'd be left with the center section of the D35 and the rest would be a D30/44.
