You think that the u bolt material wore that thin? It's possible, but it is a heck of a lot harder than the axle tube is.

Pictures are in for Dana 35C 3.07 (43:14) axle cut like a knife by U-Bolts... Searching for a used rear replacement axle with same ratio. Suspected cause of damage, loose U-bolts, worn transmission mount and engine mounts.

The great uniting factor is that we are all jeepers at heart and are willing to help each other out even if its just a little. That's what the jeep wave is all about: community. The wave is the tip of the iceberg.

UPDATE: This axle is up and running like new... U-bolts did not make it all the way through the axil housing, but were very close. The axles were undamaged. Fillet welded the housing and picked up some U-bolts at Pick-N-Pull. Torqued the U-Bolts to 90#.

Check out differential while there, found good gear pattern and 0.006" lash between pinion and ring gear.
