What is wrong with yours ? If it;s more than spiders or A axle then get the $200 priced, but remember when you buy someone elses junk you're getting someone elses junk.
If all you need is A axle or spiders than you're far better off fixing yours, and it'll be cheaper

Assuming both are in good shape, I'd buy the cheaper one. Pull the cover, check the gears, make sure everything is in good shape. The pinion should not have any side to side or in and out movement. A little rotational play is OK.

If you need a R&P then either of those 35's are cheaper

Just got a response from daviesjeep, the have a set of dana 35 with 4.10 for 750. I have a stupid question for everyone, if I go with a set, is it an easy install ( I'm assuming and hoping just a bolt in? Thanks

It's work, you have brake lines to deal with and can break and make more work otherwise it's not a killer job

Yes it's not any fabrication issues, the worst will be if the lines break, but you could avoid that by pulling the backing plates from the housing and not disturb the brake lines at all and then bolt them back onto the other axle.

I would do it that way then gamble the lines twist in the brake fitting.

Ok so my options that I've come across, I found someone that we rebuild with all new insides for 970, or take a trip to Ohio for a dana 30 and 35 with 4.10 gearing for about 1000 and my local will install for 400. Also I found a place 30 min away with dana 30 and 35 4.10 gearing but he won't open them up for me to check insides. He only wanted 500 for the set
