While I'm guessing the answer to your question will be "no", I am also interested in hearing what some of the more experienced guys and gals on the forum think. It's a mod I would consider doing if the Super 35's can hold up to 35 inch tires as well as a D44 will. I think it might just be easier to find a D44 in a salvage yard and swap out the weaker D35 like I have.

Can't speak for 35's but buddy ran his will 33's and a detroit and it did for the most part well... the most part come into play as the detroit locker went south on him. But the shafts and the gears, tubes etc where all okay. Thus, could you run 35's on it, I think so, but if your planning to hammer it every time all the time, then it may not be the upgrade for you.

The super 35 kit will solve some of your problems ie axle shafts and locker but the tubes are still weak without a major truss built and welded on. For the money spent, a D44 out of a TJ with all the brackets installed is an easy bolt in and to me better money spent add in that you can upgrade to alloy axles.

those TJ 44's can be hard to can always get an 8.8...if it has 3.73's and that is the ratio you have then you don't have to regear unless you want to. if it has 4.10's then you just can't use 4wd til you regear the front.

You will get conflicting information/feedback on this anywhere you go. The axle shafts/locker/R&P are not the weak link in a Dana 35, the tubes are. They tend to flex/bend/twist, putting stress on everything else and causing premature failure. That is why you hear of guys blowing up lockers in a Dana 35; most lockers have pretty tight tolerances, and don't like to be flexed laterally, so they grenade in the axle.

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

I want to do a Super 35 with an OX and truss the axle up some. I think that should be able to handle most from what I've seen and read over the years. If I can find a deal on a better axle, then I might go that route.
