chromolly shafts for dana 35

I have a stock 27 spline carrier and want to upgrade to chromolly axles on the rear because i keep breaking everytime i hit the trail. the only company i have found that makes them is yukon. does anyone know of anyone else and where can i find them for cheap.
thanks

Alloy USA, Crown, AtoZFabrication are a couple others.

I've found the crown ones for 300, the ones on the atoz site are 350. Alloy USA is in the process of restructuring, however if you give them a call I'm sure they can direct you to a vendor or allow you to purchase them direct.

Superior also has their c-clip eliminator kit which uses 27 spline shafts.

from my looking and gathering i think the real only solution for keeping 27 splines is the superior c clip eliminator. with 33s should do well.

a buddy of mine just got a pair of new yukons for his d35 for about 200 shipped from ebay. you'll need to get new wheel studs and all you get are the shafts but that was a good deal i thought.

The only way I'd expect chromolly 27 spline axleshafts for the rear Dana 35c axle to be of any help at all would be if you also installed Superior Axle's c-clip eliminator kit. Without that, I wouldn't expect those shafts to live that much longer than the OE shafts do in reality.

Depends what you are doing with them surely?
For most mere mortals a d35 will do just fine with reasonable sized tyres. I am constantly amazed at the abuse I give mine and have yet to even come close to disaster. If as you say you do genuinely keep breaking them then an upgraded shaft will not help as you will break that too. You need to change your driving style or buy an axle that can handle it!!!

If you're breaking axles "every" time you go wheeling, you may want to skip the chromos, the c-clip eliminator and start thinking about a super 35 like mentioned prior. Could also set up an 8.8 or Isuzu 44 for probably under 1000 if you choose components wisely. Isuzu 44 will require wheel adapters though. I've only found one company that makes them.

Exactly what do you know about the fairly new Superior Axle c-clip eliminator kit where you would dismiss it that easily?

I have to agree with upgrading axels especially if you plan to eventually go bigger and do more stuff. I have seen a lot of threads where people put a lot of time into their 35's only to replace them later.

i dont hammer the thing into the ground that is why it is so shocking tht i break. there is a guy in the club that i go with that he is either stopped or wide open on a d35 with the same tires i have and he has broke one axle in 8 years of wheeling. i have broke two axles in roughly 5 or 6 trips. alot of people have said that the chromos will help out and wont break.

Sorry Jerry. Wasn't putting the kit down at all. It seems to be excellently engineered and I've kept up with the info on it and I know there are plenty of guys running it with 33s and no breakage. I was actually looking into a lot and was gonna pull the trigger this summer, however for the money I feel there may be stronger (however ground clearance robbing). options out there. Plus with a crappy economy and shaky job market I'm staying on stocker tires for longer than anticipated.

I was under the impression that this guy was really hammering on his rig and none of us like trail fixes anymore than the next guy. Figured a tougher axle may suit his needs and wanted to throw some recommendations up from previous research I've done. However hearing now how he's wheeling the c-clip eliminator may be an excellent choice and he can install it himself.

Ok, I'm running 35's on my STOCK dana 35, yeah yeah, I know. So far in 6 years of owning my Jeep, I've never had a problem. It's all driving style and the lines you choose. Plus my diff. is open. I go easy on it but still in some situations where I thought, damn I need to go easy on it or I'll snap a shaft or destroy my spiders, still it pulled trough(knock on wood). My jeep is daily driven and sees trails once every couple of months. So, I'd say do the C-clip kit from Superior. That's the route I will be taking soon.
