No, the ring gear is part of the ring & pinion gearset and neither get replaced. What does get replaced is the Dana 35c's weak carrier and axleshafts. You're probably thinking of the spider & side gears inside the carrier but that whole assembly gets replaced by the full case locker (ARB Air Locker, Detroit Locker, or Ox Locker).
For 99% of the Jeepers on this forum, the Super 35 kit is a very good upgrade and with the locker it includes, holds up to some pretty serious offroading with 35" tires. One of the members here who has a very well built TJ with a Super 35 installed regularly takes his TJ through the toughest rock crawling trails imaginable including Johnson Valley without problem. Super 35 breakages are extremely rare.
When you have a choice, buy American made.
