Dana 35 rotational clunking under load

Started yesterday morning on my way to my CCW class. I thought it was in the trans/flywheel at first. Today I was able to get it on stands and put it in gear. It is in the rear end. It started pouring on me(of course, Im in Florida), so I wasn't able to tear it apart and see today, tomorrow or the next day. I just wanted to see what you guys thought. I'm hoping maybe the lunchbox crapped out, and I dont have to replace everything.

It is a semi-built 35 I bought in a pinch a couple years back.
4.56 gears
lunchbox locker - unknown brand
alloy axles - unknown brand
always used royal purple since ive owned it
no problems since I exploded my original d35

royal purple in a turd is still a turd. Junk the axle look for a Dana 44.

I never paid for the purple, it was free when I worked at a dealership.
I'm hoping to fix it on the cheap, at some point I'll be dropping a 6.0 in it, so I'll be upgrading the axles then.

Well, finally got enough of time between the rains to pop the cover off tonight. Missing a couple teeth on the ring gear.
Anybody wanna sell me some better axles on the cheap?

The last time I was at a Jeep dealer buying a part I asked what they wanted for labor on a gear setup (I was curious how much I saved by learning how to do mine myself). They wanted $600 per axle. A few years back I checked at a small local shop (before I knew how to do gears) and if I remember correctly they wanted $500 to $600 per axle for labor.

Yeah, I figured I'd be paying a couple hours labor. I just didnt expect to get a estimate of $9-1100 from an aftermarket shop. I could see that from a dealer
I would love to give it a go in my driveway if i had all the right tools and I had someone to double check my work, as I've never done gears on my own...
