Super D35 Kit Locked with 35's

I know that this is a fairly common question and i have seen it on here several times and i have seen several different answers. I have a 2005 TJ with 4.0L 6 Speed Manual Trans. I have Dana 35 rear open diff and Dana 30 in the front with 3.73 gears. I'm currently running 33" tires with a 3" lift. I am planning on going to a 6" lift with 35" tires and going to 4.56 gears. I already purchased the Super 35 Kit with Eaton E-Locker. I plan on purchasing the Super 30 Kit with Eaton E-Locker for the front. I plan on trussing both axles for stregnth as well.

My jeep isnt my daily driver but rather my toy. It gets mainly on-road crusing, but I'm looking to be able to perform on some moderate to tough trails also, but nothing to extreme. I'm not looking to destroying my jeep, just have a little off-road fun from time to time. Also need something to perform good in the mud as I take it hunting.

With the situation that i described would i be ok running 35's on my D35 and D30 axles? Mainly the D35?

Superior Axle's Super 35 kit does indeed make the Dana 35 worthy of running locked with 35" tires. The problem is that kit is pretty much no longer available unless you can find one still in stock at one of their dealers. Superior Axle is barely in operation at this point, most of their staff has been let go. Too bad too, I'm running f/r Superior Axle shafts myself.

Alternatives to the Superior Axle Super 35 kit? I'm not aware of any I could recommend at this point. Yukon makes one but based on past history I've read about & seen evidence of, I'm not a Yukon fan.

When you have a choice, buy American.

Well i already have the Superior Super Kit for the D35 so that is good to know. I bought it a while back but havent installed it yet. I have been buying my upgrades in waves and then I plan on putting them all on at once. I just wanted to make sure that they would be able to handle 35's before i did the switch. Like i said i plan on upgrading the front D30 also. I appreciate your insight.
