axle strength

will the stock dana 30/35 axles hold up with lockers, 32 or 33 inch tires, and a six cylinder? how much did folks out there pay to upgrade axles and what did you get?
thanks.

30 will, but I wouldn't count on the 35 holding up.

2007, 4 door, powered by a minivan engine, locked and riding on 35's.

Like igofshn said, you risk breaking axles with the d35. I paid like $670 a couple years ago @ 4Wheel parts for D44 upgrade at the same time they did some other stuff like gears. - which brings up another point - you probably want to regear when you go up to 33's .

If you had a 4 banger and 32's you would be okay, as long as you don't hammer the skinny pedal..............but you have a 6, so I wouldn't even consider it until you do the upgrade.

LIFE IS TOUGH ENOUGH ALREADY, IT'S EVEN TOUGHER WHEN YOU'RE STUPID.

RE 3.5 and all kinds of other relevant goodies, you know winch and stuff.

I have an I6 with 30/35 set up and run 32's. I pretty much don't use 5th unless straight aways on the highway, and I'm fine with it, i still travel my 70-74 top speed, and don't need more than that. As far as lockers go, I wouldn't do more than a locker up front. That should be fine for you. Anything more you will need at least a super 35 kit or D44.
