Super35 Question

Super35 question... To start I don't plan on bigger than 33s with this...

But, stock shafts are 27 spline (correct me if I am wrong) and you can get a detriot for the that...

How much strength would I be giving up keeping a 27 spline alloy, instead of a 30 spline alloy?


Reason I am asking is simply to keep the stock shafts as spares if needed...

I personally went with the super35 myself on my old rig. I believe alloy stock splined shafts are a minimal improvement in my opinion. I wheeled it that way for 3 yrs with 35's and had zero problems.

I'm not sure on the gain of alloys over stock for the 27 spline shafts. Yes, you will gain some strength, but (for me) not enough to be comfortable with the bigger tires. With that said though, I wheeled my 33's on stock shafts for 2 years with no problems at all...but I think I was an exception to the rule, and also light on the gas.

I then came across a deal for a S35, complete axle with a Detroit, so I grabbed that. I wheeled with the 33's another year, and have been on 35's for about a year as well- no problems to speak of as of yet. The added strength of the bigger shafts has made me more comfortable on the trails, and I've gotten on to the gas pretty hard more than once to get over an obstacle. So far, everything has been great.

Cool thanks for the input... I am sure I d35 would be fine with my 32s but I am looking to lock the rear...
