Im looking at all my options and want to know what exactly every thing costs to see what will suit me best Im also pricing a axle swap and buying one is out of the question at 3500$ so I would have to build one and how much is that gonna run all good things to know.What did you swap for and how much did it cost would be helpful.

prices for what? shop rates? hours? regear?
best piece of advice I can give is dont put any money into a d35
you dont have your tire size posted but those cant be bigger than 33. are you planning on running larger tires?
otherwise theres not really any point to an overhaul kit.

Im looking for it all from the guy that took it to a shop and got a super 35 installed and didnt to any work to the guy that got a 8.8 axle from where ever and bought gears locker brackets and did it all him self or paid some one else to do it.Every one does some thing different so it costs different.Its hard to tell what its really gonna cost because theres little talk of price on a lot of the threads.If its 2000$ for a finished super 35 and I could do a 8.8 for 2500$ I wanna know that.

Well your best 3 options are as you already thought of going to a Super 35 Kit.. Finding a TJ/LJ D44, or getting a F8.8. One cost to remember is that your front and rear axles must be geared the same to use 4wd.

Question what tire size are you running or plan on running and in your thought of upgrading your rear axle do you plan on regearing also?

I guessed that you had 33's
8.8-$250 and get a buddy to weld on the 8.8 install kit $100 and pop that axle in yourself
gears-$400
detroit automatic-$550
install-$700
master install kits-$200

dont mess with new axle shafts for only 33's. wayy too expensive and it will move your weak point to your carrier/gears
just upgrade ujoints and your weak point will be your axle shafts which are a cheap easy fix

grand total is around $2000 tops I dont know where you're getting 3-4000

that's all just ball park you can find better deals on parts and installs
but thats $2000 to do both axles with gears and 1 locker
dont worry about shafts unless youre going 35 and up

and you can put money into the 35. but most people will say dont. the weak point would be the housing if you upgrade internals and shafts. I've heard it's pretty easy to break or bend
the only thing you should have to go to the shop for is gear and locker installation.
just figure out all your angles on your rear axle I dont have any info on driveline angles

anyone please correct me on my information but I'm 95% sure it's all correct

I think im just gonna replace the spider gears in the carrier to get rolling again and start a parts collection to do a swap in the near future.I thought a Sup 35 was a easy fix and cheaper then a axle swap.I dont know any one whos done one just bought from Currie for 3500$ thats where I got the high price and was also looking at adding brakes and new axles as part of it.Thanks again for the info.

The only thing super about a super 35 kit is the pricetag
