No, a stock Dana 35c axle is not strong enough for a locker. What normally breaks after installing a locker into a D35 is an axle shaft since a locker can double the stress seen by either of the two axle shafts.
You could however install a locker into your front axle without much worry until your tire size gets up to about the 35" size. You won't feel a front locker's presence when you're in 2wd on the street, you'd only hear it ratchet a bit as you made turns.
