You could but it wouldn't be cheap. Labor alone would be $250-300 plus the cost of the LSD. The Tracloc LSD is what the factory installs but it is clutch-based and wears out by 45-50K miles and not many would consider it a good product for a new installation. A MUCH better LSD is the gear-based (no clutch) Detroit Truetrac which is pretty bulletproof.
Making sure you want an LSD for street use right? LSDs are not all that useful for more than gentle flat dirt trails where lockers are preferred. However, your Dana 35 rear axle is not up to (not strong enough) for a locker that commonly breaks the D35's axle shafts.
What is your intended use and do you have the $$$ to upgrade or replace your D35 to be able to support a locker if your offroad needs make a locker a better choice?
