once you spend that type of money you could do an 8.8 from explorer and D44 (if YJs have that option)

what size tires and motor are you (planning on) running

I run the axles with a Detroit locker but have no experience with trusses. The axles have served me well rock crawling. I have beat mine hard and not had any problems. Most of my buddies run these axles as well. But I have since learned you can do an 8.8 for less money and have rear disc brakes. You might give thought to that option too.

From the research I’ve done, the 8.8 is still more than the super 35 kit.
The Super 35 kit would be easier to install too.

I’m running 94YJ 4.0L 33x12.5 all-tertian with a 5speed manual on stock gears 3.07.
I’m considering moving to 35” tires but no bigger.

I just went on a trail run and the guy was running 35's and hasn't broke anything yet. I asked him how he still runs that axle. He said very carefully. It may even be locked also.

Just food for thought. I wouldn't do it though.

From what I have heard, the super kit works great for running 35s. But for that kind of money, you could have just trown an 8.8 in there, which is slightly stonger.

I have had the kit now for four years, still running great. I also have 4:88s with a Detroit locker. I'm pretty hard on it. I do have a truss but then I only use 33's.
