X2 with holder.
Evildriver 500+ HP on a stock 35? If so congrats on finding the only strong one in the world. Lol. Just kidding.

$200 on a lunch box locker is a waist of money. Chances of the 35 breaking will increase significantly. Just put in the spiders and go easy off road until you can either drop $2500 into a super 35 kit or swap in a better axle.

Why spend $2k on axles when I can get a buggy already built for around $10k hehe...I wasnt asking for opinions anymore..I was asking if any of you have ACTUAL EXPERIENCE with these types of lockers in the dana 35.

I dont mind the opinions though...its more a "I know its not best but its what im doing next" situation

Or a better way to put it is that I'd rather still have a capable 4x4 while I obtain and build new axles over the next year.

I think that was rather sarcastic, meaning it would take much more than the axle is actually worth to make it capable.

Sent from my phone where correct grammar is difficult.

I paid about $500 to get my 8.8 under my Jeep. $250 for the axle and another $250 for perches, U bolts, diff cover etc...

It may cost you $2k if you order through ECGS with other upgrades, but it can be done on the cheap.

If you don't want to FIX IT, DO NOT EVER load and unload it quickly, learn to drive so you don't ever do that.

I have a customer I built a aam and dana for , he broke the aam and said I thougth these were strong, i said they are but it doesn't mean you can use them for something they aren't designed for , and no axle is designed for loading and unloading.
After that expense he drives somewhat better.

Any diff or axle can break and it doesn't need to be at its limits, case in point the OP and his 2.5 vs my ZJ and well over 500 hp, broken hoping it with 0.0 hp and I haven't had a hiccup.

I would still agree with what others have said, just put some new spider gears in. If time is an issue, locking your 35 is only going to shorten the time before you have to swap in another axle. Unless you have spare shafts for the next time it breaks.

The good news is that if the locker survives the next time you break the D35 and already have an axle ready to under the jeep it can be resold for about 100$

8.8 took me $95 for axle at local pull n save, $200 for install which included anti-wrap perches and shock mounts off a 8.25 from a jy. Took 3 days due to shipping.
And I do have too much experience with the 35. When I first started wheeling I thought they were the bomb. I put in a lunch box in one and it lasted 3 trips off road in Florida mud. Towed home that day. Rebuilt it. Never made it off road was towing a 4x8 open trailer with a couch on it when the axle grenades at 55 MPH. Had to by a new jeep.

So let me understand this, you put a locker in your rear axle , then towed with it, albeit was light i guess.....

The axle grenades after you messed with it and it's the 35's fault it just grenaded, nothing you did wrong ?

I can not believe that at all, had to be something not set up right for it to grenade while puting along at 55

Doubtful. A lunchbox locker doesnt even require removal of the carrier from the housing.
