Superior Dana Super 35 Kit

Can someone point me in the direction where to get one?

I know I shouldnt be wasting money on D35, but I couldnt find a D44 for a reasonable price here in Turkey. For some reason Chrysler imported only a few hundred rubicons here and one for parts is hard to come by at local yards.
If I try to import it from US I will be paying half the jeeps worth. So my only option is a Super 35 upgrade that I ve been reading about. However I cant find the superiors website.

See if this helps you. I've got stuff before from 4x4groupbuy and had no issues.

Are there any Ford 8.8s in your local junkyard? That's another good option.

They went out of business so finding one will be almost impossible.

I didn't look too in-depth on that 4x4groupbuy site I posted (I've got a rear Dana 44) but it seemed to have other companies that had "super 35" type of packages so you should have some other options.

Many so-called "Super 35" kits produced by other companies aren't worth installing. If you can't get the real thing from old stock since Superior Axle has gone out of business & is no longer producing them, I'd look to G2 for what they have. G2 is the best source for such a product now.

What about Yukon? I've heard nothing by good things about them.

Yukon would be my personal last choice, I'm no fan of Yukon's axle shafts. Their ring & pinion gears appear to be fine but that's where I personally would draw the line.

Here are a couple good pics of two broken Yukon "hardened alloy" 30 spline front axle shafts....

How about a ford explorer 8.8. The stock shafts are almost as strong as my Dana 44 superior shafts and bracket kits are cheap.

A Chrysler 8.25 is barely stronger than the Dana 35 is & not worth the effort to me.

With the 8.8, there isn't much worry about breaking anything. Coupled with a hp30, you could be quite confident on 33's and even run 35's.

Between the D35 and 8.25? I wouldn't choose either.

Exactly. You would choose the stronger one.
