That's a distinct possibility. I have no problem with trimming, just as to whether my D35 will hold up to 33's until I do an 8.8 swap

im pretty sure it will. I wheeled the piss out of my D35 on my TJ and it never blew. not saying yours wont either but im sure it will hold until you get the 8.8

Hopefully, it's getting a new pinion seal right now, but hopefully thats not an indicator of failures to come.

I have a friend with a D35 and 33"'s and he's locked with 4.11:1 gears and he never has any trouble with breakage...

That's good to know, looks like 33's are becoming more and more viable as an option.

I honestly think more TJ owners have D35 problems over XJ owners

You have made the right choice by getting the correct BS wheels and avoiding spacers. Spacers are an invitation for trouble - most people put them on and don't consider any other maintenance.

Some TJ D35's just break rolling down a hill - like Bill Wu in that fantasy show about cars that are really jeeps.

D35 will take a pile of punishment open on 33's. Locked and over such as 35's is not so good, but the axle isn't the turd most people consider it to be on a lightly modified rig.

Thats good, I never realized how relatively cheap I could get brand new rims with the right backspacing sent to my door, I made the decision much easier. Actually I have a set of american racing 16x8" bajas 5x4.5 with either 4" or 4.5" backspacing in the classifieds if anyone is interested. I was going to run them, but they just arnt what im looking for, I bought them before I really knew which direction I was heading.
