|ChilliRed||I do not trust my welds for suspension parts but i know i can bolt one up thats got the brackets... there is one on ok4wd for about 1500 maybe i can work em down a lil on it. How much can i get for the 35 do u think? What about things like a TT or engine skid are they not as important rite off?|

Based on what you said about your rig, I would put an 8.8 in there and not worry about it.
Of course can you weld the brackets on yourself? That might be the only reason to go with a D44 instead. But with that amount of money that's what I would do. Then turn around and sell your 35 for some dollars and then buy more stuff for the jeep.

good point made by khenderson...long arms make it a whole lot more stable. especially on rocks. but i would prolly go the axle route before longarms. with the new axle you could get new lower gears which would be great along with not having to worry about it offroad...but then again, i would just run it till it busts! no need to get rid of it now when its good. break it!

if it were me, i'd be looking into a new rear axle and beefing up the front. whether it be a D44, or 8.8, or 9''.
or maybe upgrade to long arms.
