Stock axles on 35's??

Thinking about going up from 33's to 35's. Is anyone running 35's with stock axles? If so are you having any problems with them?

It really depends on how you drive it. Some people get away with wheeling 35's on the d35 but sooner or later something will break.

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

But I saw one go when a friend of mine took out too fast on a steep grade...kinda funny watching him replace an axle shaft before he even hit a trail...but to the OP dont be "that guy" in this case and run 35s on the D35, its not worth it.

Simple answer: don't.

There are many many posts on here about the dana 35 and 33" or 35" tires. Im planning to go to 33s in the future, but Im also about to put the Ford 8.8 in. I feel like the d35 is going to break if I look at it hard enough. Jeep should've never been allowed to have installed them in the first place....

You can also find a post by Xpress where his went out while he was driving down the freeway. d35 = crap.

since you have a c clip 35 its gonna break real easy and then your axle is gonna slide out. i broke one with 31's i have a bolt in 35 and it seems they are slightly stronger and if i break a axle, my axle wont slide out and i still can drive it home and fix it.

and another thing you need to consider is those 35s with your stock 3.07 gears is gonna suck your not gonna have any power. my opinion for the cheapiest way is to find a 4.10 front end from a 4 cyl model and install it then install a 8.8 from a ford explorer with 4.10s then you will be set and shouldnt have any issues.

Sometimes they break when you're pulling out on the street. On 31's.

That sounds like a story I'd like to hear

OP: I have a non-c 35 in my jeep for now. I have the 8.8 in the garage, I just have to finish getting all the pieces and parts together for the swap...going 4.56 for 33" . Unless you have an auto, 4.56 is the way to go...forget 4.10, Especially if your going 35s in the future.

You're not supposed to. But I am until I finish building my 8.8. It's been on 35s and a d35 since I bought it. I'm a relaxed driver so I'm pretty careful with it. However, my ring and pinion are chipped up to death, I'm not sure if it was like that when I bought it, or if running the 35s did it. But I've put a good 1000 miles on since I found out about the chips, and it's still spinning away. Upgrade if you can, but you CAN run them. It's just not a good idea because it's so unpredictable.
