Should I Upgrade My Axle?

I recently blew my engine in my tj and I am now rebuilding it as a stroker motor, bored 60 over. I currently have the dana 30 - dana 35 setup and I have read that the 35 does not hold up well to the extra horsepower. I do not want to get a new axle however seeing as how I just put 4.11's in it to compensate for my 32's. I was wondering how the dana 44 is better and if this could be a problem for me. Thanks

And the questions flow in:
Do you wheel it?
What kind of wheeling?
How hard?
Do you have lockers?

5spd is right but I would just wait until your d35 goes bad. Then again, it may never go bad
