I know most peopel will probably burn you for this, as they say the 35 isn't worth wasting money on, but have you wheeled with it yet and if so, notice any differences? Probably not, other than having a locker in there, but how did it seem compared to the stock parts?

I'm sure they will. But that's ok where I live is where we have We-Rock and a few other big rock crawl comps and there's about 10-15 guys that have entered them and done very well for the past 4-5 years on a upgraded dana 35.. No sir I haven't ran it yet waiting on the rear locker to get here .. From what everyone says at quadratec , 4wheelparts and 4x4 group buy that the upgrade kit for the dana35 30 spline is the same size axle shafts as a stock dana44 . I bought the axles and locker off eBay and saved around $325 and got the same parts matching part numbers as what everyone was pricing me.

I'm also interested in the outcome. Update the thread when you can. I have the upgraded 35 rear kit with Detroit and have been VERY hard on it with no breakage. I didn't do the front though.

As long as you know when to take your foot off the gas it'll be fine.
