If your gonna spend $1000 on your D35 you might as well just purchase Gravedigger

BTW- Watch when you buy an aftermarket diff cover. There seems to be alot of issues with trac bar clearances when using an aftermarket cover. Mabey look into one like the Warn or RuggedRidge that is a half cover used along with your stocker.

You're an idiot.

Spending $1000 on a D35 is pointless, when chances are you could spend LESS on a better axle.

I wonder what is stronger, your 8.25 with chromo shafts or a D35 with a S35 kit installed?

That's a very good question. Do you happen to know the answer to that?

Also that "spending $1000 on a D35" also gets you a full case locker or full case limited slip(TruTrac) + some aftermarket shafts(Superior Evolution Series 27 spline shafts are $200 a set online). And I KNOW I have read MrBlaine post that hed rather run a Super35 than a D44 with stock shafts.

It really comes down to if you can do the work to set up and swap an axle housing into you Jeep YOURSELF! IF you can than you may be able to do it cheaper than a Super35 kit or mabey not. At least with the Super Kit you know what your getting yourself into and you dont have to pull the housing plus you'll be a little stronger than a stock d44.

+1. And brand-new internal components including bearings, a whole lot less install work, no need for a different size driveshaft ...

Eric, I don't think a TrueTrac is available in the 30-spine for the Super 35 kit, though. I assume this is because there isn't enough of a market for it, because people wanting a TrueTrac wouldn't need the Super 35, they can stick with the stock 35 or just upgrade the shafts (that's what I did).

^^Thats why I said that Superior Evo(mabey Discovery) shafts in 27 splines are $200 online(for use with the TruTrac). they say 30% stronger than stock too(same as the Super35 kit). that way you can keep your stock 27 spline shafts for spares. I really think this is what gonna happen to my Tj when I get some loot saved up. I already have 4.10's with my 4 banger and want to/am going to swap an NP435 in place of my AX5, so I dont think I'm gonna need to regear the axles(due to the non-overdrive tranny). Just need traction aids and some stronger shafts at the moment.


BUT - I wonder if anybody has 4 linked the rear of a Tj and used their (upgraded) D35........seriously.

I really don't care who they are, anyone who would rather run a 35 needs their DNA bleached from the wheeling gene pool.

Use your brain and it should make sense to you.

Most TJs come with the 35.

TJ D44s are hard to come by.

Custom, bolt-in axle assemblies are expensive.

Axle swaps are difficult for some people if you have to setup the brackets for the TJ coil and link suspension.

Its not that people would rather run the 35, its because its what they have and it can be worked with when your talking about 33" tires.
