i wanna hear some feedback on this. i've never done, or know anyone who has done it. how much stronger is this gonna be. is it worth the money, or should you spend that money on a better axle all together.

i would never put some money in an existing D35. a used stronger axle for the rear is much better.

a super 35 is stronger than stock, but it still has the c-clip.

A super 35 is a little stronger than a stock d44 except for a slightly smaller r and p. Throw a truss on too and it can be a pretty good axle for sombody that uses it a dd and weekend trail rig. This kit is around 1200$ from most places.

i think i'd put the money in a used strong axle, if the 35 had a larger ring and pinion maybe. how strong is the 8.8, i'm lookin into that, i can find them used for 250-300 bux. locker and gears in that and you're still less than super 35

Normally I'd say you are spot on about this. However he got the S35 with the ARB for 600 bucks which is a smokin deal no matter how much you wheel. Yes it still has the weak housing and the smaller R&P, but the ARB helps you mitigate those issues and unlock it if it binds up real bad.

The 8.8 is a great axle and for your YJ application is very easy to install, but for a TJ that has a much more complicated rear suspension it can get kind of pricey to setup an 8.8 especially if someone can't weld. Just the bracket kit alone is as much as you can score the axle for. Then add in a locker or spool and you are easily talking well over a grand to get it on the road again. The 8.8's are also a C-Clip axle, but are significantly stronger than even the S35 setup.

So for the price he paid I'd say that someone that wants 35's or wheels just occasionally should jump on it and be done with it.
