Trying to help a friend, Looking for a rear axle assembly

Recently had a friend blow through his Dana 35 on his YJ with 3.55 gears. It is completely stock and he is looking for anyone that has one they need to part with. Any help is great,

Thanks!

Not sure if it would help, but there's an XJ half torn apart near the corner of Industrial Parkway and 1200 N in Orem. Most everything is gone from the front end, but I know that as of last Saturday the rear axle was still under it.

I am wondering if it will bolt right up to the YJ.

It won't. It would need the coil buckets cut off and the leaf perches welded on. XJ axles won't work either without welding since they are spring over. MJ(Comanches) are spring under but are an inch or two wider on the perches.

Your only option that is bolt in is a YJ axle.

Or just weld the leafs to the coil buckets...

Call Russ (Dr. Jeep). He's sure to have one or three, or know where to find one.

well, its stock and he isn't the offroad jeeping type. He will never go bigger than the stock sized yj tires.

I don't see a problem with him running another 35 if he doesn't go bigger. I wheeled trails like Hell's Revenge and Poison Spider back in the day with 33's on my 35. I then upgraded to a Super 35 and it ran years without issue. It could have been the p.o. who did something stupid in it, then the slightest thing your buddy did, ruined the axle.

In my personal experience, if you don't treat it like a 14 bolt, and recognize its a 35, you can go quite a ways with the stock 35.

At any rate, that being said, 8.8's or C8.25's are going for around $100-$150 (I paid $75 for mine at Pic-A-Part with everything but discs & pads), about the same price as a D35. With about $50 in bracketry it wouldn't be too hard to get one of those under it either.
