35s on stock axles

Can I put 35s on my 98 manual trans 4.0 sahara with stock axles. If not what's the cheapest upgrades I can do can I just replace the shafts and be OK?

People do it...but its a matter of time before more $$$ is thrown at it to chase the weaknesses. (My buddy broke a D35 ring gear on pavement with 35's when he anchored on the brakes hard.)

People do it... Then start throwin good amounts of $$$ at it before to long. Save for a Super35 kit or a rear axle upgrade (8.8 or D44) before you go to 35s.

I ran 35's on my stock D35 with 3.07s for a few months. The spider gears ending up popping. Prior I ran 33's, and the spider gears popped as well. I had a light foot, it was my DD and occasional wheeler. Every Jeep is different. Best upgrade I did was HPD30 / Ford 8.8 with 4.88s, from East Coast Gear Supply, check them out. I ordered my axles on a Monday, and had them on Saturday. Do it right the first time, for safety reasons. There are cheaper ways, super 35 kit, or just upgrading the rear for now, disconnecting the front drive shaft so you can drive it. What is your current gear ratio?

I know it isn't what you want to hear and I was the same way when I started asking questions about the D35 but the best thing to do is save up for a 8.8 swap.
