Don't waste the money on gearing the D35. Go straight to an 8.8. Do a search on gearing a D35. This comes up a couple times a week and the responses are the same. Don't gear a D35, its a waste. It truely is that weak.

Recovery Gear Basics
My BUDGET York OBA Install
Budget Welding Cart
Carling Contura Switch Panel

If it has tracks, tires or tits, its gonna cause a problem.

If you plan on going 37's or higher with a super charger i'd suggest you go dana 60's, or 44 up front and 8.8 in the rear, but I wouldn't run those on anything bigger than 35's, I wouldn't run the super charger either, natural aspiration > forced induction
