Depends in your wheeling. Light wheeling and more forgiving terrain it is mostly fine. Mine is locked but I still think its a time bomb. Get some nasty sounds and chunks when it locks up some times. The real answer is its just not worth the money. More pain than gain.

Actually for getting back home, a Superior c-clip eliminator kit is what you would need.

So you can run the 30 spline option on the d35? Would you trust 35s and no locker with that setup?

Yes, definitely. But if you're going that route, I would just add the locker too. The reason why I recommend the c-clip eliminator kit, is if by some rare instance a D35 shaft is broken (usually at the splined end), the kit will keep the axle intact to allow the drivable Jeep to limp back home or camp, via front drive.
