Jerry Bransford If you decide to repair it, parts and labor to install new R&P gears, bearings, shims, etc. should cost no more than $600 total. At the most. Have it repaired at a 4x4 shop, they do R&P jobs all the time... more often than standard auto repair shops do who will likely charge a lot more to do the same job.

Kevbz I surely wouldn't pay 200 bucks for someone to pull the cover off and look at some gears. At a shop rate of 100.00 they are turning a 30 minute job into a 2 hour one??!!

RubiCobra I wouldn't bother repairing a D35 when you don't know what's wrong with it. Junk it.

scot68 Depends what direction you are going with your rig. With your 33" tires if you ever plan to lock the rear you should step up to a D44 or Ford 8.8.. If not you might just look for a complete used D35 from a J/yard or Craig's List. I recently sold a perfect D35 complete drum to drum with arms for $300.00... If you have a shop doing the work on your existing D35 I can almost grantee you the bill will be higher than $300 bucks..
