They can send you one ready to bolt n for not too much more than what you plan on spending for your c clip eliminator. This damage was done on 31s to a Dana 35. The stock shafts survived while the pinion and carrier failed
Yeah I'm leaning more towards the ECG ford 8 for $1600 shipped in. I know that would be the best route to go but my question is will it rub on rocks with 33's?

It would just be hard for awhile because I'm on a high school budget but I think tax return will help

X2. It's not much bigger, but a ton stronger. It is a little shorter (width) as mentioned before. I bought one with brackets welded but ran into a deal with my current set up. Now its sitting, waiting.

It's not that much bigger and won't have clearance issues. The width difference is only 3/4" I believe. It's just a much better investment being stronger than a d44 and having good ground clearance. You'll find that 99% of the people on here will tell you not to put a dime in the d35 for a reason lol

picked up my new battery yesterday for the winch. Now just waiting on the winch in a few weeks. Been looking at East Coast Gear Supply's Bolt in Ford 8.8 and set mine up for around $995. Just waiting on tax return to get it more than likley. If i get it shipped to a commercial address i believe i get free shipping.
