As much as I would hate to use a Ford axle under my Jeep (I'm a GM guy) I would use the 8.8 LONG before spending a single penny or second on a Dturdyfive...as many of those axles that were used, if it were practical to try beefing one up there would be a lot more of them on wheelers. Find the axle you want to use, grind off the perches in your driveway, buy the ones you need and have a shop weld them in place....you'll be MUCH better off and happier in the end.

That view has been expressed a few times. It's valid but the OP is planning to stay with his 35.

Jeepin's not a hobby, it's a lifestyle!!

Not planning on anything, was just looking at options, didnt realize I needed a new carrier. As I mentioned I'm going to keep my eyes open for an already set up 8.8 (either someone parting out or upgrading)

The 'C' in 'D35C' doesn't mean it has C-clips. It's in the FAQ. The axles were 'C'ustom, i.e. they are sent unfinished to DChrysler.
