I understand your logic. I feel the same way for the most part but some people do not want to swap in new axles for limited money or fabrication abilitys. And if they KNOW that they will be staying with a smaller tire than it shouldnt pput enough stress on the r&p to rip them apart. Especially, like I said, if they arent rompin on it.

Just saying is all, why not do it once and forget about it even if you do want to step up in tire size in the future

In my opinion no matter what size tires you have on a D35 it's a danger to your axles life to put either a full locker or auto locker in it if you are driving in the snow or ice. All it will take is one good session of spinning your tires an then catching some dry pavement to snap a clip or bust a shaft. Just not worth it.

Some people just dont have the option to put a new axle in because of the things I said:money and fab skill.

That fact is never been in question. Someone mentioned just throwing a locker in there to replace the spiders and I honestly think that's a bad idea to have an auto locker in a D35 that is driven in the snow. Bad things can happen.

Yea, we can tell you what you got.

Blk, I never said I dissagreed with you. I think it CAN be alright to do though if you drive the right way or build it up correctly. Just because you lock a 35 and drive in the snow doesnt mean your rear end will explode though.

If he has the money to do that than I would suggest it. It does come with other things you'll have to pay for though. Having the gears set up on the new Detroit, and new gears if you decide to go that route.

From looking at the pics, I would agree the spiders are shot. Many people have suggested "fixes", (personally, I would lock it with a Powertrax No-Slip, but that's just me) but no one has addressed what caused the spiders to be damaged in the first place. What would cause the spiders to be chewed up like that? Never seen that before, and if something is causing the gears to get damaged, should that problem get fixed before the replacement solution is installed?

Im pretty sure its his 33's. That added wear on those gears can chew them up pretty fast. Especially if he goes mudding. Thats why mine were shot. Id assume the same problem for him. And yes, that is a stock Dana 35 rear axle you got there. Everyones favorite axle!
