Well, to be fair the S35 changes out everything but the tubes and housing, basically, so while it still looks like a D35 from the outside, there's nothing really left of the original 35.

Except the ring and pinion...

are aftermarket ring and pinions such as the superior not stronger than the stock? or are they just more expensive for no reason?...I mean, superior, yukon, and some other of the better brands out there talk about using pure 8620 steel in their r and p's....so is that not an upgrade to the oem stuff?

i would assume, that if somebody is looking at upgrading with an s35, they have either already or are going to regear to a better ratio...so if they buy better made ring and pinion gears, isn't that also strengthening the d35?
