D35 locker swap question

I have a D35 I bought that has 4.56 gears and a Detroit locker in it. I already know this is a dangerous combo and am prepared for issues. My thought is what will I need to do/buy to switch it from the locker to a TrueTrac other than new bearings and the TT itself?

Will I need to get a new master rebuild kit and have the preload redone? For the price I paid for the front D30 with TT and 4.56 and the D35 I could not pass it up so if I start going through axle shafts then I want to swap to the TT in the 35.

My idea of help from the man above is a sniper on the roof.

You'll need a master install kit (bearings and shims) and the backlash between the ring & pinion gears will need to be set up. Preload is part of the process too. Labor for this job is typically $200-250.

Thanks Jerry.
Looks like I will be holding onto my stock D35 just in case while I save my pennies for an 8.8.
