Your stock D35c is a semi-floater, where the outer end of the axle shaft actually supports the weight of the truck as well as turns the wheel. With a full-floater, the actual axle shaft rides inside the axle tube on bearings, and the outer hub and inner diff carrier are both supported by the axle housing and not the axle shaft. this allows the axle to hold no weight and the stress on the axle shaft comes only from twisting and spinning the wheel and not from holding the weight of the truck. The truss supports the axle housing and acts as a skid plate almost.
The only problem is that this only eliminate some of the problems with the D35c. You still have the small R&P and axle shafts, carrier and housing. Also with the axle truss you lose some ground clearance. Just some more info for you.
