Stock yj running gear with 35s,,,Strong enough to mud bog??

Im Buying a yj tomorrow. I wanna use it for mudding. It has 35s. Will the transfer case and stock axels hold up pretty well???

If it is used just in the mud it might last a while. You hear of guys running 35's on a stock Dana 35 without issue. Then you hear of guys breaking them with 31's. I killed my auto tranny doing some steep hill climbs with 35's and stock gears. do you know if the gears have been upgraded?

front 30 will be ok, t-case should hold up, and the 35 will work till it breaks. and it will break. cary a right side axle with you.
