aussie in D35 with 31s?

an Aussie locker for a Dana 35 has been offered to me for 125. i would be running 31s on a DD/Weekend wheeler. would this be ok for me or would it just cause problems? Please chime in with any Questions, comments, whatever!

I think it would just cause problems, but someone with more experience will chime in...

You're main problem would be the weakness of the D35 it self. You can go ahead and lock it if you want, but I would never invest any money into a 35.

I would do it. D35's break way more frequently on the internet than in real life. Take it easy, and with 31's you'll be fine.

build the 35 up a little and they're fine, and cheaper/easier than swapping in stronger axles unless you're lucky enough to get your hands on a bolt in d44. As long as you're not pushing it the 35 is fine.

I agree with this guy. On 31's and as long as your not straight floor-boarding it, you will be fine. I wheeled my TJ hard with an unlocked D35 on 35's and never broke it. If you get too worried about it just buy some 27 spline chromoly shafts.

Bingo.
31's with stock gearing is pretty lame (no offense) and I would be very surprised if you were able to break anything.

You just pull the pins and clips and push the bugger in. Very easy

I've been doing research on them for the last three weeks, since I found out about them. I agree it will be just fine and farther more if you don't buy it, I'd love to!

I bought my aussie used also. I bought replacement pins and springs for it, 20$ for peace of mind! Really thats the only pieces that wear out on them so do yourself a favor and pick a set up.

I agree that you will be fine on 31s and mild wheeling. On the road its barely noticeable unless you have your head sticking out the window and your turning.

The installation is a cake walk, you can print the install instructions from torque masters website, though the instructions make it seem harder than it is!
