Possibly yeah. Open the rear axle cover and take a look.

Hope you got a warranty on it anyway. There really isn't much you can do with a D35 and expect it to last. That's whay most guys just swap it out. I'm actually wondering why mine lasted this long, cuz I *know* the PO wheeled it on the rocks. He sent me pics.

Was it an oem or name brand axle or was it some unknown item. Proper heat treating is critical for parts like that.

Allow me to give you a little hint.

There are plenty of very knowledgeable folks on this forum. Proper manners will gain you respect and cooperation. Spelling, grammar and an effort on your part to explain your question will go a long ways.

Easy boys he's trying. 33 inch tires are a strain on a Dana 35, but 2 axles in 6 month, possible but not likely. Do you have a tendency to dump the clutch? When you changed the axle last time was there any other damage? It is fairly easy to pickup a used OEM Dana 35 axle . You might want to try that to keep the cost down. I ran a Dana 35 for years with 33's and never broke an axle, spiders are another story...
