I ran a spartan in my 35 for about 6 months. That was until two weeks ago when I had a little too much fun and snapped one of the pins that engage in the carrier (not sure of proper name). Luckily it has a 1 year warranty & replacement is free. I may be wrong here, but it seems like the part that broke was designed to break before the axle shafts, which would have made it a much bigger headache to get home.
Mine is not a daily driver so the locker itself may have had 300 miles in 6 months. I also know that 37's & a locker are way too much stress for the d35, so I'm sure it was completely my fault it failed. Honestly, it lasted longer than I expected.
That is my experience with it.

|Phil05LJ||I forgot to mention that I would be upgrading to the Super 35 kit. I was hoping to substitute the Spartan in place of the Detroit to save a little cash and I think it looks like a good locker . I should be ok if I have the Super 35 axles right? Thanks!|

If you're considering installing a locker into your stock rear Dana 35c axle, I can only suggest in my strongest possible opinion, don't. That axle is really not strong enough for a locker and the usual result of having installed a locker is a snapped axle shaft.
Check out this site for pics of what happens with locked Dana 35c axles... Another broken Jeep Dana 35c Rear-End.

Sounded like a knock-off name to me at first, then I saw one for a 30 front in a YJ, looks pretty beefy... Does anyone run this brand in a rear 35?
