Second, this crazy lady at work claims windex will eat through my rear window like acid. She's never owned a wrangler, but her son had one for awhile, but it's hard to take her seriously.

Third, the same crazy lady says my engine will go before 50,000 if I don't let it warm up for at least 10 mins when it's below 70.

i think you should quit talking to the crazy lady

You won't need different gears, but you will need a carrier that will accept 30 spline shafts. Your stock D35's are 27 spline. See the problem there?

Next I believe that they only make two carriers that will work for a D35 and 30 spline shafts and they are both lockers. One's an ARB and the Other is a Detroit. There could be more, but those are the ones I remember.

So in all reality you have to spend quite a bit more time and money to upgrade to those shafts. You are going to have to remove the carrier and put your ring gear on the new locker. Then re-install the carrier and make sure the backlash is still good on it. Some carriers are slightly larger/smaller than others.

yeah the straps are for the seat. and there are a couple more straps that hold the braces that run across from the front windshield to the roll over bar you strap them down under the seat to the little cleats that are on the floor. I use the straps to hold the rear seat belts to the rear bar so they don't flap around when you drive over 40mph

MIKE, you can always get 27 spline alloy axle shafts. then you wouldn't need the new carrier but it would still be considerably stronger (they advertise 30%) but i don't know if it would be worth it. not sure how much stronger 30% actually is.

I thought there would be more to it than just a swap. So I would be looking to spend around $1G huh?

Well it depends on what you are getting the shafts for. But, the locker is going to cost you between 500 and 700. Then swapping the carriers will probably cost you about a hundred bucks from a shop since they don't completely have to setup the gears. They would take the shims from your carrier and move them over to the new one and check backlash. It will be pretty close.

But why give you so many straps if it's just to tie down the seat? I have a dozen of them.

I have a comanche with 275,000 miles on it, never had a engine problem of any kind. I live in northwest pa were it gets cold. I do not let it run for more than a few second before driving no matter how cold it is.
