burton160w Don't bother putting any money into the Dana 35. Save the money you'd spend on regearing and buy a replacement 8.8 with 4.10 gearing, than just do the front. I don't know what tires you have now but 4.10 is sufficient (read good, not great) for up to 35s.

Border Dave If it were mine, I'd have a Detroit Truetrac installed when the gears are done. Then, save up for some chromoly axle shafts.

edit: Here's a calculator to help you figure out your gearing: http://www.grimmjeeper.com/gears.html

I think that's 32rh someone correct me if I am wrong. 4.10/11 for 33s and I'd go 4.88s for 35s. But you could run 4.56

Uh V6????? You'll get the ire of the board members up with that statement.

GoldenSahara00 V6 huh? not to bust your chops but its an I6.

Is it manual or auto? it would be beneficial to know. what year at least?

gearing is dependent on all that.

GoldenSahara00 What motor/trans do you have.

I would regear and put a locker in the front for 33s, and doing 35s I would do an axle swap before doing anything...

I'm in the same situation I want to regear and lock but I dont want to break my rear end so I decided to just lock the front and next yr get a d44 and regear the front to the rear

opcocrg I have a Detroit for a Dana 35 that I'll sell if you want to order a few parts to re-build it. I wont put it back in my rearend, I quit spending money on my 35c long ago. My avatar is my passenger side axle shaft just a couple of days after I snapped the driver side axle shaft........the locker is sitting in the garage with the passenger side spline still fused inside it.....

GoldenSahara00 If your doing a lunchbox locker you can do it yourself without messing with the R/P and can do the gears later. if your doing a locker than replaces the carrier then I would do them at the same time.

ARB is the best locker as far as selectables, as far as auto lockers/lunchboxes go, the aussie, spartan are some good and less pricey options, Detroit makes some good lockers as well, the loc right is their lunchbox I do believe.

I wouldn't lock your D35 if you wheel very hard, run tires bigger than 31, or both.
You can do a super kit and get away with a locker up to around 35s. a selectable is gona be easier on your axle because it is only applying force when in use, not constantly like with a lunchbox.

DevilDogDoc None. D35+locker usually equals boom.

Redsand What size tires and engine, tranny

03-18-2012 12:50 PM
91badass if you got the money to do both, do it, and if your having somebody install for you , you will save on labor. Gears (depending on tire size)and locker are one of the best upgrades you can do.
