As long as all bearings and rind and pinion are fine then it's a cheap and easy fix.. Just pick up a spider gear rear kit from your dealer or wherever.. Pop the center pin, slide axles in enough to remove the c-clips and remove all the gears, reverse the order with the new spider gears and your done.... Just use a magnet and fish around to make sure any loose debris is out of the rear..

I literally did this same job today on a Ford expedition and his spiders actually exploded into pieces.... Cleaned everything out, installed new spiders and off he went.. No problems

When compared to buying and swapping in say a D44 or 8.8, $125 isn't that bad and will keep you going till you research your options.... You could always sell off the D35 at that point and make it back...
