Dana Rear buildup

Since I have recently gotten some work done on something other than a CJ I figured I would post some of the progress I made on my YJ. I have had the rear axle out and sitting around the garage for some time. I just finished putting it all together and now it just needs to go back in. Done so far: SOA, 4.10 gears, stronger axle shafts, Richmond lockright locker, converted the drum brakes to disks out of a ZJ, POR15, and closed it up with a rockcrusher diff cover.

Thanks doc, I am probably going to go with a 34 or 35 when all is done. The main reason that I wanted to stick with the D35 is because it wasn't the easiest, smartest, or even the most cost effective solution. I had this vision in my head of what I wanted to try to do with the 35 and I have always liked the idea of making something out of nothing. I have noticed that the 35 has always been the "why even bother" diff I thought it would be best to build that up based on my strange way of thinking of these kinds of thing. I plan to throw it back in as you see it above but some time in the future I would like to put a truss on it to give it a little more support. I am sure that the 35 will not last forever so the upgrade I go to will most likely be a 44 but until then I will just beat on the 35 until it has nothing left.
