i wouldn't lock my rear and im on 32's. i might consider locking it if i was on 31's but no way with 33's as i've heard of 33's breaking the dana 35 when they are open...if your gonna lock something then lock the front...


there is a member on another board that just broke is dana 35 on the street with 33's...i think he might have been locked..

There are just the axles that are hardened which will give 30% more durability but still not enough for 35s. I think the dana 35 will break on the inside then since the axles will be now stronger so something else will be the weak link. There is a super 35 kit which is hardened axle but still i dont believe it will be a close match with the dana44 and for 37s dana44 wont be the best option.. as said above 37s and dana 60 should be the good couple

It's an SE, base model, D30 high pinion front [maybe] D35 rear, 4:10 gears. The D44 was an option but most who bought an SE did not spend the extra $380 for the upgrade, you'll have to eyeball it for sure.
First off, the D35, there is a 'super35' kit available with heavier axles, carrier, etc. Don't go above 4:88's on the rear, you can fit 5:xx in there but the gear tooth contact area will make the ring and pinion gears tend to break under stress.
The D30, good axle, but again, stay with 4:88 as the max, tooth contact really comes into play above that, 4:56's will drive 33's nicely and 5th will actually be usable.
Tires, I'd stay with 33's max, above that keep a spare axle or two in the back and learn how to replace them in the woods. If it's for street, 35's and 4:56's will work but 5th will only work on downhills with a tailwind .
Suggestion, 4" lift, 1" body lift, 33's, limited slip auburn in the back and ox locker, aussie or E locker in the front. It will flex like crazy, be very driveable, the limited slip in the rear won't over stress the rear D35 and the D30 front will have a selectable locker as you need it. You will also need a motor lift, transfer case shift linkage kit, adjustable track bars, thats pretty much how we have done the last 5 or so this year.

Another option depending how handy you are, D44's can be hard to find, Chrysler 8.25's out of a cherokee much easier, the main difference between the 44 and 8.25 is 1/4" smaller ring gear size difference, D44 is 1/4" bigger, the handy part is you need to cut the leaf spring perches off and weld on coil spring sockets. Around here you can get 8.25 rears out of XJ for $100 complete, don't know about your area.

possible.. i thought the guy that owned the durango that came in said it was dana 44s and it says lockers on the shifter.. its full time 4 wd.. but it can be switched to lockers off .. rear locker and both lockers on and when you spin the rear tires they both spin the same way

i ran my 35's on the d35 no problem. and it was a limited slip. wheeled hard every weekend, never broke it. not a bad axle with a good driver. or, u can do what i did and build a ford 8.8, with tj brackets. whole thing cost me 550 to do. much stronger than d35 and d44. will hold ur 37's no problem. But no matter what axle u get, u can always break it. but the front is the problem with large tires and the d30, im fighting that one right now. Ive just decided to just carry spare shafts. 30 bucks a piece. im gonna have 38's with the d30 in the front. lets see how that holds up

Upinar where do you find axles? The last axles i found were like 160-180 a piece I'm not really familiar with the d30

The D30 is decent up to 37's... but I wouldn't without harder axles... reason it acan take so much more is because its in the front, it wont take 100% of the beating because its up there.

33's with a certain level of reliability. Anything more and you take your chances.
