The YJ's are very similar strength and reliability to non Rubi TJ's. The obvious difference is the leaf springs and carbureted I6. As stated the have the HPD30 that is a stronger ring & pinion to TJ d30's. But might have a vacuum disconnect. They are known to fail or stick. They also have the smaller U-Joints in the shafts, but the TJ's are interchangable(except the hubs unless you put on newer rotors too.) On that note the knuckles out are interchangeable. Drop pitman arms can be used on YJ's where they are bad for TJ's.
If your going to be mudding. You could build that YJ into a beast. Leaf spring axles are much easier to swap. I wouldn't take that D35 with 35's out mudding. Grab a d60 and throw it under there. All you need are the two spring perches and shock mounts. Then you could pound on it all day.
Would also suggest you post in the YJ forum so they can tell you exactly what to look for.

I have aTJ Rubi Thinking of picking up a YJ tomorrow to play with
I got a guy to come down to 2700 for a nice 89 YJ. It has a newly rebuilt engine, auto tranny, spring over lift, hard top, and on 35 mts. I can sink my Rubi to the door handles and I plow right thru. I never had a YJ, Is this gonna be a good jeep to mud with. What axels are under it D30 or D35. Whatcha think
