Jerry Bransford The weak link in the Dana 35c is its small diameter 27 spline carbon steel axle shafts. The c-clips themselves don't affect their strength.

lindel I've been considering tires too. Is the weak link in the D35c the carrier or the axle shafts/c-clips?

Jerry Bransford Rather than spending the $$$ on a Truetrac (a very good LSD!) for your Dana 35c, I'd either spend the $$$ on 33" tires or start saving $$$ so you can upgrade your D35c with stronger axle shafts so it can stand up to 35" tires. As it is, your D35c is a ticking time bomb with 35" tires.

Is the Detroit Truetrac up to 35" tires?

When I bought my TJ last month, it came with (what looks to be) a spring only 4" lift and 35" tires.

I realize the D35 won't live long if I wheel it hard, but I was wondering if installing a Truetrac would be an upgrade (as in standing up to 35s)?

I'm not opposed to a locker, but am trying to keep costs down some.
