just look for Jeep tj dana 35 parts

You should have 4.11 gears now so I think your carrier is good up to 4.88's

A Lockrite is a "lunchbox" style locker that goes inside the carrier. If the carrier you are buying has a Lockrite inside it, I would not install it. The stock axle shafts used in a Dana 35c are barely adequate for 33" tires when no locker is installed. When a locker is installed, it's not really adequate for any size tire. A locker can double the load a single axle shaft sees when you're offroad and they're just not designed for twice its rated load.

Generally speaking, a stock Dana 35c axle should never be locked. The only safe way to install a locker into a Dana 35 axle is to upgrade it with a Super 35 kit that replaces the OE carbon steel 27 spline axle shafts with hardened alloy 30 spline axle shafts. A Super 35 kit also includes a choice of full-case locker like an ARB air locker, Detroit Locker, etc.
When you have a choice, buy American.

The main reason I was looking at it is cause it 100$ I have read alot about the shafts and it wouldn't go in till the time was ready. just didn't know if it would fit. Then again by the time I decide to do this I may have a set of 44's out of a grand wagoner so anything is possible lol. plus if I did run this it would be on 30" tires and trailered to the trail with a set of spares. mainly just want to get out and play.
