What kind of money are we talking about for a lunch box locker?

Take a look at the many online vendors. Anywhere from 250-350 is what I would expect.

i have aussie in both my d30 and 8.8. i have had 0 problems with either of them. went with the d30 first. don't notice it on road. off road its a beast!!! will pull you over or through anything. the locker in the 8.8 is fun. it pops, cracks, causes my tires to chirp in turns....love it. now down to deciding. i didn't do too much research on the two....basically went with aussie. got good reviews and haven't read of any major problems. IF i had to do it over again, probably would have went with spartan. this is because spartan doesn't reuse the thrush washers. when mine was installed in the 8.8, the tolerances were off by a bit. still works tho. good luck with your decisions.

Well, after yesterday it's been confirmed that I do NOT have LSD in the rear. Looks like I'm going to be rethinking this whole idea and either going LSD or lunch box in the REAR first.

Um. No.

Dana 30 is a much stronger platform to be starting with. Plus it won't effect your daily drive.

X2 and my buddy has a Detroit in the rear vs my lunchbox front, same overall jeep set ups other than that, and I've been able to get up and over obstacles ALOT easier than he has. My .02

I agree with Anti and AZ. Instead of doing anything with your 35, you could get an 8.8 in the appropriate gear ratio with a Limited Slip, and install a lunchbox in the front. I'm running a stock D30, locked with 33s and its doing fine.

I also ran a d35 on 35s with an Aussie running 8s and 9s . Never snapped a shaft. But that's a different thread

People make the d35 out to be the worst thing ever invented. Are they ideal for off-roading, no, but they will get you by if you have half a brain.

. Must not wheel hard enough. I destroyed a D35 with 33's with a 4 banger on 2 occasions. First one was hit Black ice then pavement and snap at less then 10 mph. The second time I had bumped the jeep a little too hard rear came airborne and came down. Snapped both shafts and bent the housing.

But assuming your YJ is a 90 you have a non c clip which is a little Stronger then then the c clip version.

They are flange mount like the D44 in the 87-90 XJ's. No C Clips. I have see. Less of them break over the years then the 91+

Yes they are stronger but not by much
