[QUOTE=somis;1938933]I have a d35 with the upgraded 30 spline axle shafts ARB locker and 4.56 gearing. It is a four banger. but why does everyone think its such a terrible axle? I dont have much jeep thrashing under my belt yet but i know how to break a d44 in a truck with ease. In four low bouncing around slipping with sudden traction will find a weakness. The 4.0 has plenty of nutz to break a 35, its just a matter of not reaching that limmit that keeps it in one piece. I could drive forever with this 35 but i want the confidence of a stronger axle and pig and i want to push it more
True enough "i have not broke it" but i can get a stronger axle installed for basically nothing. So its a no brainier for me. When and if it breaks, i want to think "how the heck did i do that?" not "why the hell didn't i do that"
Idono to each their own man, and if ur happy who gives a rip what others say.
