Need a little help with my dana 35

So I bought a set of superior axles 30 spline shafts for my d35 with some odds and ends (basically a super 35 without the locker). I figured I could buy it, save up for a locker and thn pay someone to put it on my jeep (thought about trying it myself, still undecided). But I'm having trouble finding a 30 spline locker for my d35 that lets me keep my 3.07 gears. I don't have the cash to regear right now, so my options are

A) Find someone who makes a 30 spline locker that lets me keep my 3.07 gears.

B) Convert my d35 to 30 spline ( I think I would need a new carrier, but I'm not sure) and do the regear/locker down the road.

C) Let the shafts sit in my room until I finally have enough for the regear+locker+install cost.

D) Sell the shafts (pretty unlikly, if there's a way, I plan on finding it).

It's worth nothing that I'm a senior in high school so the 1200 for the regear, plus the 500-700 for the locker and the 400 I paid for the shafts is a little out of reach for now.

You could find a junk yard carrier that will accept the 30 spline. If you do the back you should do the front.
I always thought the stock shafts were 27 spline
Even if you find a carrier with the 30 spline it would probably not be 3.07 which is not very desirable. If you find one that's 3.73 you'd have to do the front to and to pay someone to set it up .you might as well just get new ones and step up to 4.11 or 4.88

That's just my thoughts.
You could dig and dig and dig and you MIGHT find at 4cyl in a junk yard that still has its axles and just buy both front and rear. They would just bolt in and you have 4.11.
Sell the shafts you have and just get at 27 spline shaft for it.

Not gonna find a whole lot of people that are willing to put money into a turdy five. I killed 4 of them with 31" tires. the first 2 had 3.07 and the last 2 had 4.11 out of a 4cyl YJ. Carrier died from a bent axle shaft/tube, cracked the pumpkin and spun the DS tube, had the spider gears come apart and ate up the R&P and the bearings and broke a shaft turning out of the parking lot at Lowes and a chunk when into the R&P and killed it. So I upgraded to a free AMC 20 and now I am running 36" tires and haven't broken a thing.

Don't continue if you don't plan to regear. A "Super 35" is mistake enough, it will be a complete waste if you don't regear while your in there.

A lot of people haven't had problems and a lot have. Who knows. my friend has had her jeep for over 3 years and hasn't had any issues at all and has taken it on several trails and back an forth from Colorado where she's from. I'm not saying its a good axle, it is what it is.

Where in the deep south are you? Your prices sound like Florida. Craigslist down here is great for finding tj parts.
Do you go off road? Lifted? Tire size? Try amazon too.

Louisiana. And I check Craigslist before I buy anything. And I offroad, but not as much as I'd like to. I have a 2 in lift with 30 in tires.

And to everybody else, I think I'm going to save up to regear, then get the locker and instal the shafts.
