Tiny ring gear
Rubber band housing

Well- now you have. This one trashed the spider gears in his D35 during this run

I believe the D35s used the older C clip retainer which was a real problem - if it broke, your axle slid out! Know some who had this problem. The newer D30 in the front uses a unit bearing that retains the axle, not a C clip in the pumpkin...also, the D30 in front is a high pinion which is inherently stronger because the pinion rides on the correct (strong) side of the ring gear. All for the better if you ask me.

Seeing that the 2 door JK Rubicon weighs 4,100 dry, I would say a D35 would be screaming under there. Can't even imagine what that thing would do under a four door.

Couldn't decide who to quote from above..

On my '99 TJ, I've got the D30 front, D35 rear, on 3.73 and 33x12.5 on 15" rims. I ran a Lock-Right locker in the front, until it cracked, then replaced it with an Aussie Locker. The D30 is still going strong, although I think my knuckle joints are going out. I just started to take it apart to find out what's going on.

My D35... well, one time I blew out the clutch pack from the Trac-Lok, and the other time, I blew out my side and spider gears on a moderate trail (my fault really, the rear-end hopped up, and I didn't let off the gas fast enough before it came down). Mine is c-clipped, and a Super35 is on my list. However, I do know they made 2 versions of the D35.. c-clipped and non-c clipped... FWIW...
