Gonna swap the 4banger for a Chevy 4.3L Vortec with a AX-15 5 speed. Lift 5-6 inches to run wide 35 inch tires. should i upgrade axles or will stock be good enough for mild trails and sand??? of course i will regear for larger tires.....

Front dana 30 rear dana 35

Front can live with 35's but carry spare shafts if you put a locker in.

The rear dana 35 is your weak link. It has rather small 27 spline shafts. You can either use one of the upgrade kits, which will give you 30 splines with new shafts or the better solution would be a new complete axle such as a dana 44.

Yea Bro. Don't waste your money on upgrading the 35. I know people who have and it still didn't last. Save your dough and when you can afford it upgrade to a 44 or 8.8.
