Superior Dana 35 C-Clip Eliminator Kit

I know this kit is out already because I have seen it on 4wheelparts. I see that it comes with 30 spline axles, so here is my question. I currently have the superior 35 kit with the 30 spline ox locker. If I buy this new kit, would I still be able to use my locker? I love my setup right now and wheel it very hard up here in the mountains of Guam with 35" Maxxis kreepy Krawlers. I want to upgrade to this kit because it uses bigger bearings, the shaft is a little thicker near the flange and gets rid of the c-clip so I can limp back down the mountains without my wheels comin off.

The regular kit does not come with 30 spline axles. But, the Super 35 will soon have axles for it that use the same bearings and yes, you will be able to use your locker.

They are in production now.

You aren't listening. I'm right, they are wrong.

4wd.com's catalog has the 30 spline listed too. Maybe both are advertising ahead of time (still in development) to get a jump on the market??? Hehe, looks like its out there.

You aren't listening either.

The copy for both ads was written by the same moron that was too lazy to do it correctly.

The kit(s) is out of development and in production.

No! That standard 27 spline C-clip eliminator will likely be warrantied up to and including 33" tires with the Super 35 kit with the eliminator covering above that, to and including 35's.

For larger than 35's, look for a different rear axle.

What was that, I wasn't listening. Too busy not giving a damn.


Wouldnt suprise me in the least, especially considering it says nothing about needing a different carrier.

Did anyone ever tell you that you come across like a school nun that's ragging?

Wow this thread explains alot about MrBlaine from what I heard..
All Hail you..
If it is in "production" someone will sell it and say its on "backorder"

Leo is right about Guams trails its either dry rockcrawling one week and the next sunday your totally mudbogging and not on purpose once the sun comes out in 1 hour or 2 its usually dry..
To bad we are like the mainland we are getting our buts kicked by developments and treehuggers..

One of my chores for today is to take the pair of prototype axle shafts I have in my garage, assemble the bearings onto them, fetch up the rest of the parts, put the kit together and then deliver the completed mess to Superior so it can be shipped out to one of the magazines for an install write-up for the D-35 c-clip eliminator in 27 spline.

See if you can figure out the rest. So yeah, all hail me.

33" tires according to mrblaine. I would listen to his recommendation and not go bigger.

35" tires for the Super 35 kit.

He's explaining a product that he personally developed that Superior Axle is producing. If you get all butt-hurt from having the facts presented rather than "gentle hearsay" from someone else, more power to you. Is there really something wrong with being told someone is wrong about what was said?

That person who knows already answered your question in post #8.
