I have no real clue where to get one but you better off saving the money you are going to spend on the super 35 kit and put it towards a 44 or 8.8. but good luck if you go with it.

You will hear about 99% positive reviews of Super 35 kits. Very few people have any issues with the kit.

I run 35" tires on my super 35 kit and I beat the hell out of my jeep... never had any problem at all. I have the kit made by Superior with a detroit locker and most people suggest this kit, although I don't know of any of them being BAD. Just make sure you get it installed by someone who really knows their stuff and change ALL of your seals and bearing while you're in there.

IMO a super 35 kit is a perfect option unless you want to go larger than 35" tires.

I agree, I have been beating on mine for over a year now with no problems.

No problems here either, I got mine off craigslist. If you have to re-gear at the same time prepare to drop some coin.

Don't need to regear. That has already been done. Just looking for the best place to purchase one.

I would try locally first. A guy in our club has a shop and does them if you want to come to Houston. Otherwise, I have bought stuff from Northridge and RedRock and been happy with their service.

I saw on Northridge you can piece part, 30 spline shafts and locker separately. Not Superior, but I don't know if that matters.

Mine is a Super in my mind only (since it is not a Superior product). The guy I bought mine from must have piece parted it because I have an Auburn Ected in the rear. I have been very, very happy with that selectable locker, and the LSD on the street is a bonus.

My thing is with parts and install what is your end product as far as money compared to going ahead and up grading to a 44 or 8.8. you can get a 44 and run 35's all day without new axles, c-clips E, and more.

I wasn't aware that the Auburn Ected was available in a 30 spline dana 35.

because the detroit is a full carrier and the S35 kit replaces the bearings you will still have to pay someone to set up the gears on the detroit with the correct shims (this is typically included in the install of the S35 price).

typically shops will only install kits you buy from them. so, unless you have a bud who does gears (or you do them yourself) your best bet is trying to find a local shop that sells/installs these kits. The S35 I bought a few years ago was done by 4 wheel parts in denver. They did a good job and it lasted until I pulled it, sold it, and stuck an 8.8 under the jeep.

Apples to apples Please.

I want to see your comparo with new axles in the 44, and a new locker. And I ain't buying that you can get by with the stockers and here's why. If you can make the stock axles work all day long in either the 44 or the 8.8, then you are a perfect candidate for the Super 35.

If all the harder you're wheeling is enough to make either of those two choices work in their OEM form, then why bother? It's much simpler, less time consuming to just get the Super kit installed and go have fun.

BTW- I don't recall the OP asking if the 44 or 8.8 was a better choice.

Your right I will keep my opinions to my self... Isn't that what this forum is for to help and enlighten people about their jeeps. If the OP doesnt want or like my opinion he doesnt have to read it nor use it.

It's not that your opinion isn't listened to. It's inappropriate for the thread. The OP for his own reasons elected to go with a Super 35. He's asking who has a good reputation as a reseller. Not should I go S35, 44 or 8.8.
Blaine pointed this out I thought clearly.
And, yes we don't think poorly of the S35 around here.
